MU MDS and Quality Research Team

The University of Missouri MDS and Quality Research Team is an interdisciplinary group committed to conducting research that will help nursing homes in Missouri deliver high quality services to residents. The Team began work in 1993 and members have had funding for their work since 1994 through the Missouri Division of Aging, the Health Care Financing Administration, the National Institute for Nursing Research, the Agency for Health Care Policy Research, and other agencies and foundations. The goal of the team is to improve quality of care for nursing home residents. The team specifically focuses on the use of the MDS data for quality improvement and monitoring resident outcomes of care.

Team members have published a number of publications from their research. A reference list of these articles may be found on our AgingMO.com site.

The team also has a number of projects in progress or completed. If you would like to see what research the team has undertaken, please visit the projects page.
