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 areas of a) fall prevention and b) stroke rehabilitation. Active involvement of community and clinical stakeholders is a hallmark characteristic of Dr. Juckett’s research, resulting in collaborations with local organizations including Lifecare Alliance and The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center—all of which provide immensely valuable health and human services to the older adult community.
