    Contributing author discusses mediation and geriatric care management

    Posted by admin on Aug 22, 2011 3:38:03 PM

    Check out this interesting blog post from Dana Curtus, contributing author to Cathy Cress’s Handbook of Geriatric Care Management, Third Edition.

    Handbook of Geriatric Care Management, Third Edition now includes for the first time a chapter on mediation, titled Mediation and Geriatric Care Management.  As the author who contributed this chapter, I am happy to post my first blog about mediation.   It seems appropriate first to let you know a bit about myself.  I am a full-time mediator and mediation trainer and happily have been for twenty years next month.  In the past five or so years, I have increasingly devoted part of my practice to mediation of disputes involving elders and their families, or issues related to them.  I am also a mother, a grandmother to four precious granddaughters (and another grandchild of unknown gender on the way).  I have been a daughter and granddaughter, caring for and loving aging family members.

    I have a warm place in my heart for Geriatric Care Managers (GCMs) and have worked with many GCMs as a teacher of mediation and as a mediator collaborating on cases.  These relationships have served as powerful alliances, with GCMs allowing me to serve my clients in mediation more effectively and, I believe, assisting GCMs to be more effective in theirs.

    Q & A with Authors Janet Houser and Kathleen S. Oman

    Posted by admin on Apr 15, 2011 12:34:55 PM

    Below is our recent interview with Janet Houser and Kathleen S. Oman, authors of Evidence-Based Practice: An Implementation Guide for Healthcare Organizations.

    Janet Houser, PhD, RN, Academic Dean, Rueckert-Hartman College for Health Professions, Regis University

    There are a lot of books on evidence-based practice.  What makes this book different?
    It is a good thing that we are seeing more references for evidence based practice.  Our book is different in that we focused from the beginning on “how will this book be used.” Our yardstick, for everything from the chapters to the appendices was framed with application in mind. A staff nurse or an administrator should be able to pick up this book and use the recommendations here immediately. The appendices in particular are reproducible forms and checklists that can kick-start an EBP effort.

    Looking at the list of contributors, it is clear we have an impressive range of contributors.  Dr. Colleen Goode, winner of AONE’s outstanding researcher award, collaborated with Dr. Sharon Pappas, winner of the INARC outstanding research award to produce sound, sensible advice about the role of leadership in EBP implementation. Virtually all of the contributors are practicing EBP in their own field, and the book is the better for it.
