Our geriatric patients are complex to care for. There are often multiple layers of diagnoses. Sometimes there are unwanted – and preventable – side effects from the medications prescribed.
I can imagine that there have been times in the past that you, too, wished you had been able to do more when you witnessed the patient’s frustrations, the fears, and the behaviors.
You could be assigned to care for a patient experiencing significant agitation, sleep difficulties, suicidal ideation, chronic conditions to manage and polypharmacy concerns – all during your next shift. How can you ensure that you are properly prepared? Earn your Geriatric Certificate!
Watch me, Nanette Lavoie-Vaughan, MSN, ANPCP- DNP, as I share with you the proven best practices I have accumulated throughout my years assessing and treating patients in acute care, long term care and home health roles. I have created this comprehensive 2-day educational event based on what I’ve found to be the most challenging diagnoses and stressful geriatric situations.
Purchase today and you will also receive bonus materials, packed with helpful tools and the latest guidelines from The American Geriatric Society, The Gerontological Advanced Practice Nurses Association and the American Psychiatric Association.
The last year has been trying. For our patients, their families and all of us on the frontlines. I want to make this training helpful and enjoyable. You will learn through a combination of the latest evidence, sheer ingenuity and heartfelt passion. As I share real patient stories and case studies, you will leave with a clear understanding of what a difference we can all make.
