UIowa Csomay Gero Resources
The Barbara and Richard Csomay Center for Gerontological Excellence advances the belief that nurses who are prepared in the best evidence-based gerontological practices make a critical difference in the quality of life of older persons. To this end, the Csomay at the University of Iowa College of Nursing develops and maintains EBP Guidelines as a means to promote “best practices” among nurses and others who provide day-to-day care to older adults.
The Csomay Center Evidence-Based Practice Guideline program includes 27 evidence-based practice guidelines focusing on promoting health outcomes, safety, and quality of life well-being for persons primarily in long-term care settings.
Distinguishing features of the Csomay EBP guidelines are:
Our guidelines set a standard for comprehensive and practical evidence-based practice in long-term care. Each guideline is authored by nationally recognized experts in specific topic areas, undergo peer review, and are revised and updated every 5 years. Furthermore, our EBP guidelines may be used as educational materials for either staff education or for teaching gerontological care to undergraduate or graduate students.
