Area of Doctoral Study

Physical activity interventions among older adults, Meta-analysis methods

Area of Post-doctoral Study

Analysis of complex data sets, sedentary behavior and light intensity physical activity, physical activity and physical functioning among older adults across health care transitions.

Program of Research

Dr. Chase program of research focuses on chronic disease self-management, healthy aging, and maintaining physical function through physical activity among older adults. She is also has a research interest in caregiving for older adults, especially during transitions in care.

Bio and Professional Experience

Dr. Chase’s clinical experiences as a cardiology RN and nurse practitioner inspired her interest in self-management of chronic disease among older people. She is especially interested in physical activity behavior in this population. She has studied the impact of activity on older adults’ health and physical function, and how to change physical activity behavior. During her doctoral program, she conducted a meta-analysis to examine the effectiveness of interventions designed to increase physical activity behavior among older adults. During her postdoctoral training, Dr. Chase examined functional trajectories across health care transitions using existing clinical data sets. Dr. Chase has also conducted qualitative research among family caregivers of older adults in the post-acute home health care setting.
