Geriatric Care Series Session One:
Hospital Care of Older Adults

The growing number of older hospitalized patients presents special challenges to nurses who are providing their care.

This 3 part series is designed to enhance the nurse’s knowledge on evidence- based care for the hospitalized older adult.

Curriculum is based on the Nurses Improving Care for Healthsystem Elders (NICHE ) model of care, which was developed by the Hartford Institute for Geriatric Nursing and NYU College of Nursing.

This program is supported by Aging Adult Services (AAS) and the Geriatric Medical Services at Stanford Hospital & Clinics. AAS is a program devoted to meeting the needs of aging adults and their families, and providing them a continuum of care with support and resources.

The Geriatric Medicine Services provides out-patient clinical care and in-patient consultations to assist in the management of geriatric syndromes in hospitalized patients.
