The Core Curriculum for the Long-Term Care Nurse is for all members of the interdisciplinary team caring for residents who live in long-term care facilities – those team members who are employed by long-term care and hospice staff who see residents in nursing and assisted living homes. The intent is to place in the hands of those providing care for residents the tools required to bring quality palliative care in accordance with the evidence of best practice. Organized by the 8 National Consensus Projects domains, 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. An appendix has a listing of all the medications used in the book with generic and trade names, classification, Beer’s precautions, and specific cautions for the elderly.
