UC San Francisco's Harrington wins GSA's 2005 Doris Schwartz Gerontological Nursing Award

The Gerontological Society of America has chosen Dr. Charlene Harrington of the University of California, San Francisco's School of Nursing, as the recipient of the 2005 Doris Schwartz Gerontological Nursing Award. This distinguished honor, presented by GSA's Clinical Medicine section in collaboration with the John A. Hartford Foundation Institute for Geriatric Nursing, is given to a member of the Society in recognition of outstanding and sustained contribution to geriatric nursing research.

The award presentation will take place at GSA's 58th Annual Scientific Meeting, which will be held from November 18th-22nd, 2005 in Orlando, FL. The actual conferral will occur on Saturday the 19th at 5:30 p.m. at the Orlando World Center Marriott Resort. The meeting is organized to foster interdisciplinary interactions among clinical, administrative, and research professionals who specialize in the study of the aging process.

Harrington's research has had a national inpact on long-term care policies. Her studies on staffing served as the basis for a recent investigation of nursing homes by the U.S. General Accounting Office and the U.S. Inspector General of the Department of Health and Human Services. She has often presented testimony before the U.S. Senate Special Committee on Aging and has served as an unpaid consultant to this committee. In 1999 her efforts led to budget legislation on higher minimum staffing standards and salary increases for California nursing home staff.
