Those of us at the HCGNE are highly involved in developing and promoting programs responsive to your needs as gerontological experts. Some of the most recent programs include:
Geriatric Seminar Series
The Portland Area Geriatric Seminar Series: Excellence in Care, Research and Education was initiated in 2011 by Dr. Sarah Goodlin, Associate Professor, OHSU School of Medicine and Chief of Geriatrics at PVAMC and Dr. Terri Harvath, OHSU SON Professor and Director of the John A. Hartford Center of Gerontological Nursing Excellence. These evidence-based, interdisciplinary seminars focus on geriatric care, research and education. They are hosted by multiple Portland area healthcare organizations. For more information contact the Hartford Center at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Gerontological Nursing Faculty Scholars Program
This offering was made available during 2011 and 2012 for graduate and undergraduate faculty at Schools of Nursing across in the northwest. The program was designed as part of the Hartford Center 2011-2012 grant funding period to increase the competency of current faculty to teach gerontological nursing at both the basic and advance practice levels.
Gerontological Internship Program
Area Gerontological Nurse Leaders are collaborating to create an internship program that will better prepare nurses for successful careers in the care of older adults.
