Assessments and Best Practices in Care of Older Adults

Why is assessment of older adults so important?.
Illnesses in older people often look different than in younger ones.

In an effort to provide age appropriate assessment resources that will help to fill the gap between knowledge and practice in the care of older adults, the John A. Hartford Foundation has funded the Hartford Institute for Geriatric Nursing (HIGN) at New York University's College of Nursing for a project called How to Try This.
This initiative that will provide web access to evidence-based geriatric assessment tools free of charge along with demonstration videos. A corresponding print series will be published in the AJN.

UPDATE: Check out the online access to the videos and the print articles . [Mar 18, 2010]
