This study involved a unique, integrated approach to providing

wellness care to the elderly and evaluating the results of that

care by an interdisciplinary team of health professionals.

Consisting of a physician, two nurses, a dietician, a clinical

pharmacologist, an exercise physiologist, a dentist, a

psychologist, and two education specialists, the team worked

together for two years to complete the funded project. The field

phase of the study was evaluated using a quasi-experimental pre-

and post- test control group design which used three replications.

Significant improvement was found to exist between the gains made

by the experimental group over and above those of the control group

on five of the seven self-report sections of the Personal Lifestyle

Survey (Sign Test, alpha = .05). They were activities of daily

living, psychosocial activities, developmental activities,

nutritional activities, and activities relating to medication. In

addition, the experimentals were found to have lost more weight on

average than the control group. Measures to determine the impact

of the collaboration which was an integral part of this study were

not part of the project. Nevertheless, the team believes that the

positive outcomes of the study were influenced by the synergy and

holistic approach made possible by the group dynamic. Ongoing work

by the team is now in process, and additional research results will

be available in the future.
