1.0 Nursing Continuing Professional Development Contact Hours

Target Audience

  • Advanced Practice Registered Nurses
  • Registered Nurses


This course will help practitioners understand the importance of health literacy on health promotion in home care and how to best work with adult learners.


The course also describes the impact that a population-health focus has on the care of clients, families, and caregivers, and how home care clinicians and care managers can integrate components of health literacy and health promotion in home care practice. 

This series was developed to assure that interprofessional team members have the knowledge to care for older adults in the home. These modules promote team-based, coordinated, person-centered, evidence-based, quality home care for older adults.

This series was created by The Hartford Institute of Geriatric Nursing (HIGN) at New York University Rory Meyers College of Nursing, in partnership with the Visiting Nurse Service of New York.
