The Core Curriculum for the Long-Term Care Nurse is for the nurse caring for residents who live in long-term care facilities. This includes nurses who are employed by long-term care and hospice staff who see residents in nursing and assisted living homes. This curriculum offers the tools necessary for quality palliative delivery to patients in the long term care setting. Organized by the eight domains of the National Consensus Projects Clinical Practice Guidelines, this book provides a foundation for caring for residents with chronic and life-limiting illness from admission to death, including extensive sections on the expected changes of aging; pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic changes; symptom and pain management; as well as delirium, dementia, and depression. Related areas of the Minimum Data Set assessments and related care area triggers are included.
