All nursing homes have licensed nurses, but what makes their role unique and important? Are their roles to do tasks that nursing assistants usually cannot do such as administer medications and treatments? Have you ever considered the residents' professional nursing care needs and if they were being met? This webinar series introduces you to an evidence-based framework—a nursing practice model which includes person directed care principles-- that can be used to guide the organization and delivery of nursing care in long-term care settings. Using the nursing practice model as a framework, the webinar sessions will target current issues such as reduction of hospitalization and antipsychotic medications for residents living with dementia. The webinar series will conclude with how nurses and nursing assistants can best work together to provide person-centered care.
