The Atlantic Philanthropies has awarded two grants to increase the knowledge and skills of those providing care to older adults. Information about the care of those over 65, derived from cutting-edge research and best practices, is now available to nurses and other providers in either print format or streaming video, at any time and at no cost, through this series called A New Look at the Old. The print series began in the August 2004 issue, and continued until December 2006. You can read or download the articles already published by clicking on the titles listed below. Those interested in viewing the 60-minute or 30-minute programs which began in January 2005, can go to NursingCenter.com/library/NewLookattheOld. These programs are archived for viewing at any time.
