Overview

Note: The current price reflects a 30% discount to support education during the COVID-19 crisis. The original price is $30.00.

The course also describes how home care clinicians and care managers can assess and manage atypical presentation of illness in older adults as part of an interprofessional team.

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.
