The consequences of Polypharmacy and the Elderly
Your supervisor needs to make sure that each of the in-service topics will be covered by someone, so she is asking the staff to communicate their topic preference. Below is the list of problems your supervisor wants the nursing staff to be able to teach older adult clients (and/or their family members) about.
Coronary artery disease
Increased risk of falls
Nutrition and hydration
Your supervisor has asked you to submit a 1-page proposal, written using proper spelling, grammar, and APA, which addresses the following:
Identify the client problem your in-service will address.
Describe at least 5 consequences of the client problem as it relates to the health, safety, and well-being of older adults.
Explain your rationale for choosing the client problem you selected.
