Staff at the Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing at UC Davis have recently been collaborating with AARP to empower family caregivers with the knowledge and skills needed to care for a loved one at home.
As hospitals send patients home after shorter stays, many family members are left taking on important medical tasks. The Wall Street Journal's Laura Landro recently reported on ways to teach family members important medical skills that may help them care for their loved ones.
The Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing along with AARP have created a series of online how-to videos for family caregivers. To learn more about this partnership, including a video detailing its goals and successes so far, see the full Wall Street Journal story, Smarter Ways to Teach Family Members Medical Skills.
