November 2016

This month’s issue focuses on aged care and also includes an Education Supplement

A number of aged care nurses will be profiled, including the country’s most recently endorsed nurse practitioner for older adults Sheryl Haywood. Practice articles will cover delirium and how to deal with it and nurses’ roles in managing long-term conditions. An education article will look at preparing students for clinical placements in aged care. A new initiative in caring for the elderly in Rotorua will be profiled – Whare Aroha CARE Village – which opens in December this year.

There will also be follow-up articles from the campylobacter outbreak in Havelock North, an update on the interRAI assessment tool and some final coverage of the NZNO conference last month.
