Each tool encourages nurses to understand the special needs of older adults and to use best practices when caring for older adults.

Each Try This:® issue is a 2-page document with a description of why the topic is important when caring for older patients and an assessment tool that can be administered in 20 minutes or less.
Try This:® materials are screening tools and should not be used to make diagnoses.
