Introducing the newest Geriatric Resource Nurses!
As Queensway Carleton Hospital implements the ACE Program, supporting the strategic initiative of a Senior Friendly Hospital, we thank Royal Bank of Canada for generously supporting our education initiatives.
QCH continues to support Nurses at the bedside to care for complex and at risk older adult patients by providing advanced education using the NICHE Geriatric Resource Nurse model.
Upon completion of this 3-day course, presented by QCH experts in geriatric, evidence informed practice, the Geratrice Resource Nurses – GRNs – indicate an improved level of preparation and confidence not only with direct care provision, but with the added dimensions of their GRN role including educator, leader and change agent.
In December, 2015, QCH Foundation shared news that Royal Bank of Canada donated $200,000 towards NICHE education of QCH Staff over 3 years. This generous gift translates to exemplary geriatric patient care for many years to come. Thank you, RBC!
Additional GRN sessions this year will be offered to nurses October 3 to 5, 2016.
