Critical care nurses deal with a variety of age groups in the ICU. Older adults who are acutely ill may offer special challenges not necessarily presented by younger patients. They can be confused and require more assurance about the things going on around them. They are also more prone to injury from simple tasks such as getting to the restroom. AACN required a short course focused on key differences with older patients to make ICU nurses aware of best practices in their care.
Caring for older patients is already part of the experience of our target audience so this course needed to quickly get across ways to make the ICU’s job more efficient while delivering the level of care required by older patients.
The primary benefit of level one delivery for this project was the efficiency of quickly making this important content available 24/7 to the target audience as a new addition to the AACN curriculum.
