Abstract

This report describes a Nursing Care Quality Initiative (NCQI) through which a new model of care for hospitalized older adults and their families, the Family-Centered Geriatric Resource Nurse (FCGRN) model, was introduced. Eighteen units in 10 hospitals participated in the NCQI Project. Educational, clinical, and evaluation components of the NCQI Project are described.
