For Nursing Home Culture Change, How You Decide Matters – November CARE Connections

What helps nursing homes make and sustain changes that improve residents’ quality of life and employees’ work experiences?

Read what School of Nursing researchers found in the November issue of CARE Connections, the monthly newsletter of the School’s Center for Aging Research and Education. Here’s an excerpt:

One Shahbaz illustrated how this fosters a greater sensitivity to potential health issues, saying of their Home’s Elders, “You know their rhythm. You know their routine. … We notice the small changes in them. … So we’re able to communicate with the nurses. Hey, red flag. Here’s something that’s not right.”

This month’s CARE Connections also includes a profile of CARE Affiliate Jillian Bodden, DNP, AGPCNP-BC, APNP, information about the CARE U train-the-trainer program to improve education for direct care staff, plus resources and news relevant to older adult health.
