Research Focus

Dr. Juckett’s research focuses on bridging the gap between empirical discoveries and the use of these discoveries in real-world practice settings. Heavily informed by the field of implementation science, Dr. Juckett’s research examines the factors and strategies that influence evidence-based practice adoption, primarily in organizations that serve the older adult population. Specifically, Dr. Juckett’s work aims to develop and test “implementation strategies” that support the use of evidence-based practices in the contexts of (a) stroke rehabilitation and (b) home-delivered meal (or Meals-on-Wheels) systems. Active involvement of community and clinical partners is a hallmark characteristic of Dr. Juckett’s research, resulting in collaborations with local organizations such as Lifecare Alliance and The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center – entities that provide immensely valuable health and human services to the older adult community.
