Product Description

See what nursing management can do to make bathing a better experience.

When it comes to bathing in your facility, think there’s no other choice but to persist with a resident who is utterly distraught over the idea of bathing? Think again. Learn a new way to apply the "culture-change" model to bathing the elderly in this 1-hour presentation with renowned nurse Joanne Rader. Using  her own ground-breaking research on bathing without a battle, she'll reveal the pitfalls of task-driven care dictated by routines and offer innovative alternatives -- that get nursing management involved. Even better, you can apply the key points of this audioconference to all ADL care and other services -- and turn the vaguer concepts of culture change into practical reality.

Here’s a sampling of what you’ll learn:

  • It's not just about the CNAs: Key ways nursing management must get involved to make bathing better.
  • Nursing actions that support decision making at the bedside to create person-directed bathing.
  • Evidence- based  practices that create pleasant -- or at least tolerable -- bathing experiences for residents and staff.
  • Reliable ways to decrease aggressive (self-defensive, protective) behaviors related to bathing.
  • A closer look at your facility's organizational structure -- and how it contributes to a friendlier bathing experience.
  • How to jumpstart the culture change process for bathing.

Who should attend? People in the position to make changes in a long-term care facility's organizational culture: directors of nursing, charge nurses, department heads and administrators.
