Thought I’d join the Editor Lisa Berry (@RCNi_Lisa) in wishing her journal Nursing Older People a Happy 30th Birthday since it falls in June. I’ve been a subscriber since 2013, possibly a little longer. Just occasionally my colleagues, students and former students get something published in it. So thanks for being there and spreading the word about some of the great things they do.
Unfortunately you generally need to subscribe or buy it to get to see the articles but just occasionally they make some items freely available and that’s why I am bringing it to your attention this week.
Ahead of the RCN Congress they released a free to access frailty resource that contains an RCNi Learning module called “Reframing frailty as a long-term condition”
Some video case studies on using the Comprehensive Geriatric Assessment (CGA) tool in both acute and community settings and some further advice on managing frailty are included. I think this resources might be due to close soon, so pay a visit and take a look while you still can. It’s at https://rcni.com/features/frailty-resource-collection-84906#.XOP-wrRGOtM.twitter
