Clinical Simulations’ Potential to Improve Geriatric Care – January CARE Connections

As nurses treat more older patients across healthcare settings, how can schools better prepare students to work with older adults? Read the January issue of CARE Connections, the monthly newsletter of the School of Nursing’s Center for Aging Research and Education.

Here’s an excerpt:

“When I’m with the students in their hospital clinical placement, they’re seeing lots of older adults who are really sick. They come to the hospital, get needed care and leave, but often come back again.  We need to do more so that our students really get and can deliver quality home health and preventative care to older adults.”

This month’s CARE Connections also includes a profile of SoN Clinical Assistant Professor Kari Hirvela, event announcements including a State Capitol briefing with SoN Assistant Professors Lisa Bratzke and Andrea Gilmore-Bykovskyi, and news relevant to older adult health.

Sign up to receive future issues by email on the CARE website.
