The new nursing Best Practice Guideline from the Registered Nurses’ Association of Ontario on Delirium, Dementia, and Depression in Older Adults: Assessment and Care has been released, replacing the 2010 version.
The guideline focuses on:
- Practice recommendations directed primarily toward nurses who provide direct clinical care to older adults across the spectrum of care
- Education recommendations directed at those who are responsible for the education of health-care providers (the recommendations outline core content and training strategies required for entry-level health-care programs, ongoing education, and professional development)
- Organization and policy recommendations directed at managers, administrators and policy-makers who are responsible for developing policy or securing the supports required within health-care organizations that enable the implementation of best practices.
