GSA receives grant to strengthen social work practice for older adults
Date:2/7/2013

Thanks to $1.35 million in recently awarded funding from The John A. Hartford Foundation, The Gerontological Society of America (GSA) is reaffirming its commitment to meeting the health care needs of older adults through adequate social work support.

This three-year grant will build upon the successes of the Hartford Geriatric Social Work Initiative (HGSWI), which has been coordinated by GSA since 1999 and has supported over 200 doctoral fellows and faculty scholars who are helping to build a workforce of social workers trained and educated in geriatrics.

The new money will be used to establish a Hartford/GSA National Center on Gerontological Social Work Excellence, which will focus on three major objectives: a collaboration with the U.S. Veterans Administration (VA) to develop social work research leaders to help advance evidence-based knowledge related to VA practice in aging; the mobilization of the current HGSWI Alumni Network using their expertise to impact practice and policy; and the creation of five Hartford Academic Centers of Excellence in Geriatric Social Work at institutions of higher education.

"The grant builds on our many successes over the last 13 years and gives us an opportunity to shift our attention to better infusing social work health care practice with evidence-based knowledge," said GSA Deputy Executive Director Linda Harootyan, MSW, who will serve as program director of the National Center. "Interdisciplinary collaboration and partnership, a core of GSA's mission, will be a cornerstone of this effort."

The National Center also will seek funding from a variety of sources to support and expand its objectives and functions, as well as ensure its sustainability.

The grant is designed to maintain the momentum of progress made by the HGSWI a
