The Toolkit Taskforce Committee of GAPNA presents the “Gerontology Resources for APRNs in Acute and Emergent Care Settings,” toolkit.
The goal of the Gerontology Resources for APRNs in Acute and Emergent Care Settings (“Acute Care Resource Guide”) is to make geriatric and gerontological content easily accessible to those caring for older adults in higher acuity care settings.
It is designed with APRN students, preceptors, clinicians, and educators in mind, and to provide a single portal to comprehensive resources. This Acute Care Resource Guide is alphabetically organized by acute and emergent care topics, and includes links to websites and videos available publicly.
Some of these resources may require a log in and/or a nominal fee for access. The Acute Care Resource Guide was developed by a group of APRNs who specialize in the care of older adults in acute and quality of healthcare delivery to older, acutely ill adults.
Resources are primarily from open sources, professional organizations, and universities. Rather than an exhaustive list of topics, the Acute Care Resource Guide focuses on common acute and emergent issues among older adults.
