Description

Nursing in Catholic health care is built on the value of respect for dignity of persons at all stages of life and the belief that every patient deserves the highest quality of care available. For hospitalized elders, we should strive to continually improve our nursing care to this vulnerable population. Advances in nursing research and practice are showing that functional decline need not be an inevitable complication for hospitalized elders. And yet for too many seniors, hospitalization leads to loss of physical and mental functioning. The webinar discussed how leaders in geriatric nursing research and practice are revolutionizing nursing care of hospitalized older adults. The webinar discussed proven nursing strategies for maintaining physical and mental functioning, preventing infections and falls, and promoting the well-being of elders in need of hospital care.

Presenters: Gay Landstrom, MS, RN, Senior Vice President and Chief Nursing Officer, Trinity Health; and Marie Boltz, Ph.D., APRN, BC, Director of Practice Initiatives, Hartford Institute for Geriatric Nursing, New York University.
