New Training Video: Interviewing Frail Elders

The federal government now requires that residents of Medicare- or Medicaid-certified nursing homes be interviewed as part of their clinical assessments. A new video, funded through the Picker/Commonwealth Fund Long-Term Care Quality Improvement Program and developed by the UCLA/Jewish Home, demonstrates best practices for interviews related to residents' cognition, mood, preferences, and pain. The Video on Interviewing Vulnerable Elders (VIVE) also outlines techniques to improve communication with older, frail populations and includes model interviews, with nurses acting out scenarios based on real situations. Visit The Pioneer Network for more information.
