The teaching strategies offered in this section are guidelines for faculty to develop encounters with older adults that are intentional and that incorporate all or some of the ACES Knowledge Domains and Essential Nursing Actions into student learning experiences.
Alzheimer’s teaching strategies:
While the symptoms of Alzheimer's dementia are prevalent in many practice arenas, the disease behind the symptoms and the many complications caregivers are faced with are often difficult and easily misunderstood. This series of teaching strategies are designed to help the student become more proficient in understanding Alzheimer's dementia as a disease process and the care management implications.
The ACE.Z Projects aim to advance the care of older adults through innovations in nursing education. Please access our Advancing Care Excellence Series for helpful resources to teach and treat other vulnerable populations.
