This title is part of the University of HealthCare/University of Business Interactive Training Library, which offers authoritative, clearly written material in an interactive form for better comprehension and documentation of completion. Documentation of age-specific competence of staff in healthcare organisations is a requirement for JCAHO certification. This course is a great compliance tool to help organisations teach and test the basics of age-competent care in an easy way. This course consists of two parts: the first part (77 pages) teaches you about the requirements and how to meet them. Upon the completion of this overview of age-specific competence, you will be able to explain why age-related competence is important, explain why age-related competence is important for JCAHO inspections, and list and describe steps in the implementation of an age-related competence program. The second part (135 questions pages) consists of five short tests that enable you to document your age-specific competence easily on Infants, Children, Adolescents, Adults, and Elderly.
These tests cover general characteristics of age specific competencies that apply to most healthcare organisations and are not a substitute for customised ones that some organisations may require.
