ICONS & INNOVATORS WEBINAR
Various forms of research can be used to understand the impacts and outcomes of care and the environment where it is delivered. To evaluate outcomes in nursing homes, researchers studied care environments using PEAK, a state-based, pay-for-performance program that incentivizes person-centered care.
This webinar will highlight multiple methodological approaches and share how data-driven information has guided critical programmatic and design decisions. Presenters will share case study examples that definitively connects research to the resulting design of the environment of care.

She also serves as the Coordinator of Aging Research and Graduate Studies for the K-State Center on Aging. As a designer and gerontologist, her research is focused on aging and environmental relationships.

Growing up in the nursing home where her mom worked, Laci Cornelison was a gerontologist from the start. Those years of hanging out with older adults while her mom said to "keep busy" turned into her passion. Now she holds the official credentials of a gerontologist along with a long-term care administration and social work license. Laci’s experience has included direct leadership and clinical practice in an innovative person-centered care home, college instruction on aging, program leadership with the Kansas PEAK program and the KSU Center on Aging, and national long-term care advocacy and research. She currently serves as the interim Director of the KSU Center on Aging and PEAK program coordinator.
