Focus on Symptoms and Care for a Specific, Complex Population

Focus on symptoms and care for a specific, complex population

Our virtual scenario focused on Geriatric Care provides the opportunity for participants to learn and test their ability to manage an aging group of patients. Specifically, the tools used in this virtual scenario focus on resource prioritization. As learners work though the scenarios, the patient assessment becomes progressively more difficult. The unique patients have symptoms ranging from early stage heart failure and respiratory distress to orthopedic pain and depression. Within Prioritization of Care, learners will record vital signs, interview patients and chart the observations and rationale in SBAR format.

Prioritization of Care

Our virtual scenarios Prioritization of Care Geriatrics Specialty and Prioritization of Care Clinic focus on helping nurses learn the skills necessary to work with and care for the complex geriatric population. These unique patients often have a range of symptoms, from orthopedic pain to heart failure, from depression to respiratory diseases. Prioritization of Care scenarios allow learners to apply their knowledge and use intervention selection and prioritization skills to work with aging/elderly patients.
