COA-LTC (HHA-CNA): Health Literacy
- Direct Caregivers
Understanding the importance of patient health literacy is an important piece of health promotion. This module will guide HHAs, PCAs and CNAs on how to integrate components of health literacy and health promotion in their care of older adults.
Care of Older Adults in the Long-Term Care Setting (COA-LTC) is a series created by the Hartford Institute of Geriatric Nursing (HIGN) at NYU Rory Meyers College of Nursing, in partnership with ArchCare, the Continuing Care Community of the Archdiocese of New York. The program was created to assure that all healthcare team members have the knowledge to care for older adults in long-term care settings. The program promotes team-based, coordinated, person-centered, evidence-based care for older adults.
