Credit Available - See Credits tab below.



Description

Every day, you watch your patients struggle to overcome challenges brought about by an aging brain and body. You strive to provide the best care possible, but it is difficult to really understand the frustration caused by the sensorimotor changes of aging. Instead of empathizing with your patients, transform your practice by experiencing a day in their life!

Join Mary Ann Rosa, MSN, GNP-BC, CDE, and Gerontologic Test Suit GERT® for a high-energy, dynamic seminar filled with hands-on, interactive learning and insightful discussions. You will leave this seminar with practical techniques that you can apply the next day! If older adults are routinely under your care, don’t miss this opportunity to gain valuable insights and learn innovative and practical intervention strategies to improve the care you provide.
