Aims & Scope

JAMDA is the official journal of AMDA - The Society for Post-Acute and Long-Term Care Medicine.

JAMDA is the leading peer-reviewed publication for practical information and research directly applicable to healthcare professionals providing post-acute and long-term care (PA/LTC), as well as policy-makers, organizational leaders, educators, and advocates.

The journal is an indispensable resource for medical directors, attending physicians, nurses, consultant pharmacists, geriatric psychiatrists, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, physical and occupational therapists, social workers, and others providing, overseeing, and promoting quality PA/LTC.

JAMDA emphasizes original evidence-based articles on the issues most important to improve care, address emerging clinical issues, inform evidence-based policies, and achieve regulatory compliance. Articles address topics such as geriatric syndromes; Alzheimer's disease and other dementias; implementation and translational research; products and models of community-based and residential PA/LTC, and their related regulatory, policy, and cost implications; and clinical tools, practice guidelines, and consensus statements. Implementation studies are especially valued.
