Title: Preparing the Healthcare Workforce: A Best- Practices Continuing Education Geriatric Program

Abstract: Older adults are living longer with multiple health problems, many of which are chronic, and as a result, are using more health care services. There is a critical need for preparing and building a healthcare workforce to care and advocate for the vulnerable aging population. 

The purpose of this descriptive presentation is to inform nurse educators and clinicians of the components in a multi-disciplinary collaborative Health Resources & Services Administration (HRSA) funded Nursing Geriatric continuing education program. The presenters will explore an innovative tiered program that delivers geriatric education to professional and paraprofessional healthcare providers working with the older adult in hospitals, nursing homes, rehabilitation centers and the community.                                                                                                                 

This evidence based clinical and service project curriculum incorporates established nursing best practices and standards in geriatric education modules, developed for nurses that will equip eldercare providers on multiple levels to treat the dramatically increasing elderly population which includes a growing number of cognitively impaired, medically underserved and minority residents.  Examples of collaborative linkages among academic and clinical affiliates will be explored and expansion of the geriatric education program that includes inter-professional integration is examined.
