Virtual Home Visits Teach Real Skills – November CARE Connections

How can nursing students appreciate how the home environment impacts care and health?

Read how School of Nursing faculty worked with others across campus to develop virtual home visits using scans of real homes, in the November issue of CARE Connections, the monthly newsletter of the SoN’s Center for Aging Research and Education. Here’s an excerpt:

“My major take away … is the importance of working as part of an interdisciplinary team to get more insight into the patient’s lifestyle and home environment.”

This month’s CARE Connections also includes COVID-19 and family caregiver resources; a profile CARE Affiliate Beth Fields, PhD, OTR/L; and news and events related to older adult health and well-being.

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