A Nurse-Driven Community Education Program For Older Adults

American Nurse Today—January 1, 2017

Jack Davis, MSN, RN, ONC, manager of patient education and research at HSS; and Patricia Quinlan, PhD, MPA, RN, CPHQ, assistant vice president for Nursing Excellence at HSS, co-wrote a bylined piece in American Nurse Today about how they developed and evaluated a nurse-driven community education program for older adults.

After the program was implemented and saw success, outreach expanded to additional senior living centers.
