Enriching Clinical Learning Environments through Partnerships in LTC (ECLEPs)
The ECLEPs site provides numerous resources for faculty in nursing education programs and for community-based residential care organizations. The "peer reviewed gerontologic resources" were developed as an easy-to-use reference for faculty wanting to infuse nursing courses with gerontologic content.
Topics include: ACE.S (Advancing Care Excellence for Seniors), ACE.V (Advancing Care Excellence for Veterans), and ACE.Z (Advancing Care Excellence for Alzheimer's Patients and Caretakers).
Bathing Without A Battle
The Bathing Without a Battle training is now available on line, with continuing education credits.
Many of you may be familiar with the training. It was developed using videos and data collected as part of a 1997 research project done in North Carolina and Oregon that explored ways to make bathing a more pleasant experience for both residents and staff who live and work in nursing homes and other places where people need assistance with bathing. It provides lots of practical, relevant information about how to easily and safely adapt the bathing process to meet the needs and desires of residents, particularly those with dementia.
