    AGS releases Geriatric Nursing Review syllabus

    In case you are interested: http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/releases/224720.php

    The American Geriatrics Society will release the third edition of the Geriatrics Nursing Review Syllabus: A Core Curriculum in Geriatric Nursing (GNRS3) -- an invaluable self-assessment and continuing education tool -- at the Society's Annual Scientific Meeting this week in National Harbor, Maryland. The Annual Scientific Meeting runs from May 11-14. The 2011 update of the acclaimed Geriatrics At Your Fingertips (GAYF) will also be released at the meeting.

    Featuring contributions from more than 120 AGS members and experts in the field, GNRS3 covers the latest developments in geriatric nursing and can be used as a key teaching resource and a study guide in preparing for board examinations.

    "GNRS3 is the premier source of clinically relevant information on geriatrics for those who wish to expand and update their knowledge in the field," said AGS' incoming president Barbara Resnick, PhD, CRNP, who along with Ellen Flaherty, PhD, RN, served as co-lead editors of the Syllabus. "The updated GNRS3 includes an added emphasis on evidence-based practice and on quality assessment and improvement, which is essential to those entering and already in the field."

    New to this edition are chapters on frailty, outpatient care systems and heart failure, and 120 completely new, case-oriented, self-assessment questions. Also new are strength-of-evidence ratings for key diagnostic, prognostic, and therapeutic information. Quality indicators from the Assessing Care of Vulnerable Elders-3 (ACOVE-3) project are included in selected chapters so that GNRS3 readers can more easily use the contentto measure and improve the quality of care in their practices.

    As with previous editions of Geriatrics At Your Fingertips, the13th edition of this annually updated compact guide includes text, tables, algorithms, and assessment instruments based on the latest medical literature and clinical guidelines. New to GAYF 2011 is information on when and how to discontinue medications, treatment of HIV in older adults, and common foot disorders. Medication tables are updated shortly before publication and include special caveats and cautions to facilitate appropriate prescribing in older adults. Since its initial publication in 1998, GAYF's up-to-date content and portable format quickly made it one of the American Geriatrics Society's (AGS) best-selling publications.

    Post is from 2011, so the mentioned link may be out of date. At least I copied the text, so folks/members can look up the AGS.

    And jespah? Thus is the nature of things Medical at times.
