Abstract:
This poster/presentation describes the process of working with a community of older adults to assist them in identifying their educational needs. Using the Community-as-Partner Model (Vollman, Anderson & McFarlane, 2004), nursing students in consultation with a community of older adults prioritized and implemented educational strategies to meet the health needs of older adults. Though the older adults identified regular BP monitoring and education to be most important in promoting and maintaining their health; they felt their voice was not being acknowledged by community health care providers. High BP is the single most modifiable risk factor for the prevention of stroke, however there is little health promotion programming focusing on prevention, detection or management of high BP (Ministry of Health and Long Term Care, 2000). This presentation supports the notion that a community of older adults will embrace a variety of educational health promotion and protection activities when they are linked to BP monitoring? Are we listening to the client's voice?
