This site from the Hartford Institute for Geriatric Nursing offers hundreds of evidence-based resources for nurses and other caretakers of the elderly. Readers may like to begin by selecting View Resources, which directs to a list of more than two dozen types of resources, including Apps, Journals, Listservs, Marketing Materials, and many others. The site can also be searched using the drop down menu of evidence-based geriatric topics, such as Advanced Directives, Sleep, and Substance Abuse, among others. The content of the topics, however, is the most essential aspect of the site. Selecting Critical Care from topics list, for instance, navigates to an impressively informative article by Michelle C. Balas, PhD and colleagues, in which the authors explain parameters of assessment, nursing care strategies, and other details of critical care. These geriatric nursing resources are as reliable as they are readable.
