This is the second video in a series of articles and accompanying videos, part of the Professional Partners Supporting Diverse Family Caregivers Across Settings project funded by the Jacob and Valeria Langeloth Foundation through the AARP Foundation. Nearly one-third of American households have been involved in providing assistance to an older adult family member, often without the skills they need because of a variety of barriers to learning. This video (which has an accompanying article in the November 2011 issue) explores these barriers and discusses how nurses can use “teachable moments” and “teach back” to promote learning among caregivers.
Would you believe that it is possible to maintain urinary continence among residents with end-stage dementia? The author of the article on which this program is based can attest to it.
Most practitioners have mistaken ideas about the inevitability of urinary incontinence as we age. That notion extends to the general public and is reinforced by advertisements for incontinence pads. However, research shows that urinary incontinence is treatable, often without pharmacologic intervention, especially if assessments are routinely made by registered nurses and behavioral interventions implemented.
This program outlines the myths and the science related to urinary incontinence, and steps you can take to assess, improve and maintain continence among your client population. The 60 minute program features interviews with Dr. Specht, nurses working in long-term care settings, a physical therapist, and a resident with urinary incontinence.
Staffing is, quite possibly, one of the most talked-about topics in health care. This program will provide you with important advice--whether your concerns revolve around the liabilities of insufficient staffing; steps to reduce these liabilities and improve your staffing sufficiency; or what the research says about the relationship between nurse staffing and the quality and cost of care.
Staffing Matters: Liability, Research, and Patient Outcomes provides further evidence of the critical link between nurse staffing and safety and quality of care and guides viewers in short and long-term strategies to protect patients and caregivers.
