Abstract

To design and evaluate an educational intervention to enhance care of hospitalized older adults with impaired cognition.Pre- and post-focus groups were employed to design and evaluate the intervention.Four categories emerged from the pre-intervention focus groups: many knowledge gaps; reliance on outside expertise; limited involvement in care planning; and preferences for in-person training. Three categories emerged from the post-intervention focus groups: addressing learning needs/preferences; awareness and use of best practices; and many factors affect knowledge application.The intervention resulted in self-reported improvements in knowledge and the ability to apply this knowledge into patient care.
