Title:
Advanced Practice Nurses Identifying Community Needs
Abstract:
Advanced Practice Nurses Identifying Community Needs
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2001
Conference Date:November 10 - 14, 2001
Author:Stark, Sharon
P.I. Institution Name:Monmouth University
Attendees will: 1. Identify three barriers to providing primary care to homebound elderly and chronically ill. 2. Describe two methods to improve quality of health care for the homebound elderly and chronically ill. Increased incidences of chronic, multiple, and degenerative diseases related to longer life expectancy, in conjunction with present day fragmented health care systems, has negatively affected continuity and quality of care for everyone. Aging Americans may experience gaps in health care that seriously hinder their ability to maintain health and prevent complications from chronic disease states. Many homebound elderly who are isolated in their homes, have multiple health problems, yet do not seek health care because they are not aware of services that are available, have poor support systems, do not understand the gravity of potential complications of their disease, or are too mentally or physically debilitated to leave their homes. Ambulatory health services do not routinely provide primary care follow-up visits in the home. APN home visits are instrumental in creating a link that establishes primary care health visits for those who would otherwise not seek to access health care services. Nurse Practitioners establish their own group of clients and provide primary care visits on a monthly, bimonthly, and as needed basis. They are responsible for coordinating care of their clients and for referrals to receive dental, podiatric, and eye care, psychological counseling, nursing, and home care as well as social services for which clients may be eligible. These interdisciplinary practice arrangements ensure that the necessary care is provided. Homebound clients that are directed to appropriate organizations receive continuous, quality health care, and improved quality of life.
