General Purpose: To provide registered professional nurses with information on best practices in nursing and social work to help families care for older adults.

You can earn up to 20 continuing education contact hours with this supplement. There are two ways to earn hours: you can read some or all of the CE articles and take the tests that appear at the end of each article; this can earn you between 1 and 17.5 contact hours, depending on how many tests you take. You may also read the special-content articles and sign the attestation statement, which appears on the coupon on page 90; this can earn you 2.5 contact hours.
