1.  Participatory Adaptation of an Evidence-Based, Arthritis Self-Management Program: Making Changes to Improve Program Fit 
Family & community health  2012;35(3):236-245.
We employed community-based participatory research techniques to adapt an evidence-based Arthritis Self-Help Program (ASHP) for older African American, Hispanic and non-Hispanic white adults. Participants and instructors provided multiple recommendations for program changes in telephone interviews and focus groups. Recommendations were adjudicated and implemented through a collaborative, consensus-based process involving diverse stakeholders. Changes implemented show sensitivity to the preferences and needs of participants, as well as the strengths and constraints of program instructors and host sites. Improved fit for participants may extend the program’s reach and effectiveness for older adults of color. In addition, the adapted ASHP may make the program more feasible and therefore sustainable for the host sites.

2.  Practitioners’ Views on Elder Mistreatment Research Priorities: Recommendations from a Research-to-Practice Consensus Conference 
Journal of elder abuse & neglect  2011;23(2):115-126.
This article presents recommendations from expert practitioners and researchers regarding future directions for research on elder abuse prevention. Using the Research-to-Practice Consensus Workshop model, participants critiqued academic research on the prevention of elder mistreatment and identified practice-based suggestions for a research agenda on this topic. The practitioners’ critique resulted in 10 key recommendations for future research that include the following priority areas: defining elder abuse, providing researchers with access to victims and abusers, determining the best approaches in treating abusers, exploiting existing data sets, identifying risk factors, understanding the impact of cultural factors, improving program evaluation, establishing how cognitive impairment affects legal investigations, promoting studies of financial and medical forensics, and improving professional reporting and training. It is hoped that these recommendations will help guide future research in such a way as to make it more applicable to community practice.
