Three research or clinical projects are presented that discuss the creative work APNs are doing to further the care of older adults.

Learning Objectives:

  • Describe the key components of the self-care of heart failure (SCHF) program content used in a house call practice.
  • Discuss the SCHF program evaluation findings.
  • Identify two recommendations for future research in self-care of heart failure.
  • Describe the effects of immobility on hospitalized elders.
  • Identify facilitators and barriers to mobility and maintaining functional status in hospitalized patients as identified by nursing staff participating in a clinical trial to improve mobility for hospitalized patients 70 years and older.
  • Analyze recommendations from nurses participating in a clinical project to improve mobility in elder hospitalized patients for application to APRN geriatric practice.
  • Define orthostatic hypotension according to consensus definition and the standard for measurement.
  • Identify the relevance of orthostatic hypotension to negative outcomes for older adults in dementia care units.
  • Describe nursing care measures according to an evidence-based protocol to minimize or prevent OH.
