The Hartford Institute for Geriatric Nursing launches "ConsultGeriRN App" for Ipad
The Hartford Institute for Geriatric Nursing (HIGN) has developed an App for the iPad, designed to help healthcare professionals with their decision making in providing the best quality care for older adults. The "ConsultGeriRN.org App" is a 24/7 mobile reference provides information and tools to treat common problems encountered in the health care of older adults.
It is a powerful and readily accessible tool for healthcare professionals as they meet new situations in everyday practice. HIGN used the most current evidence based practice standards for the care of older adults to develop this application and it is now available to healthcare professionals worldwide so they have this information at their fingertips without ever needing to leave their patient's side.
Current topics include Delirium, Agitation, Confusion, Fall Prevention and Post Fall Evaluation.
You can purchase the App here on the ITunes store.
