Approach To Aging That Stands The Test Of Time
Hopkins Nursing’s Center for Equity in Aging is already leading the way through education (Behavioral Intervention: An Online Program that teaches the trailblazers, massive open online courses on dementia and psychological issues of older adults that reach tens of thousands across the globe); research (from fall prevention to dementia intervention to a “guided care” treatment approach), and practice (from CAPABLE, a program that keeps seniors safe in their own homes longer, to Fuld Fellows and the student-based Geriatric Interest Group, dedicated to enhancing knowledge on nurse roles and quality and safety of care).
At the School of Nursing, all pre-licensure students are required to take "Nursing Care for Older Adults Across the Continuum," in their first semester. "We see that as an essential competency for every nurse who graduates from Hopkins," says Associate Professor Elizabeth Tanner.
