Oleg Zaslavsky is an Associate Professor in the Biobehavioral Nursing and Health Informatics department at the University of Washington School of Nursing. Dr. Zaslavsky creates and tests innovative behavioral interventions using digital technologies to enhance the lives of older adults by empowering them to promote their health, manage symptoms, and live well with multiple chronic illnesses. After earning a Ph.D. in Nursing Science from the University of Washington School of Nursing in 2012, Dr. Zaslavsky led the development of digital behavioral solutions for people with comorbidities and their caregivers, including wearable, mobile, and web-based interventions. Concurrent with this intervention work, he worked on advancing clinical understanding of glucose management in several populations, including those living with frailty, dementia, and the effects of very old age. The foundational experience in digital tools and avoidable admissions serve as an impetus for several proof-of-concept ideas aimed to develop an innovative and automated digital solution for monitoring individuals with dementia to detect sudden changes in health with an ultimate goal to prevent acute care crises.

Dr. Zaslavsky earned his BSN from the University of Haifa, his MHA from the University of Tel Aviv and a PhD from the University of Washington.
