The Foundation's Teaching Nursing Home Program

The Foundation's Teaching Nursing Home Program was designed to establish affiliations between schools of nursing and nursing homes in order to improve care for elderly persons with chronic health problems and to provide settings for clinical service, education and service.This grant is for Phase 2 of the this program in Madison, WI. This affiliation will require a mechanism of dual appointments in which nursing faculty is introduced into the service structure of the nursing home. To accomplish this goal, the grantee will implement a continuum of quality health care services at the nursing home, demonstrate and evaluate different models of delivery, work to influence reimbursement policies for long-term care. A system will be developed offering clinical experience to graduate and undergraduate students in nursing and health-related disciplines, and encouraging research studies focusing on the problems of aging and needs of the elderly. The grantee will establish an area-wide training and consultation center for health planning in nursing homes.
