Research Projects Across CREATE Sites

The CREATE sites are working on various research projects to better understand the acceptance, design, and use of technology to help older adults age successfully. Each site is researching important study topics that will help to realize this goal. Below are examples of such studies.

Weill Cornell Medicine / University of Miami:

  • Study 1: Investigating Decision Making by Older Adults Regarding Pursuing Technology-Based Activities with Extrinsic or Intrinsic Reward Value
  • Study 2: Examining the Influences of Health Information Source, Individual Characteristics, and Patient-Physician Engagement on Health Decisions

Florida State University:
