What are the implications of Dr. Dychtwald’s messages on your nursing practice and/or your future FNP/AGNP practice? Be specific, and your comments MUST go beyond educating, caring and communicating with older adult patients. Your comments MUST be addressed to the care of older adult patients, not the nurse. Use this week’s assigned readings/references to support your statements. Remember to refer to the article “Prescription for the future: How hospitals could be rebuilt, better than before”.
During his lecture, Dr. Drychtwald alludes to Star Trek with all the new technologies being developed. Why, even the article, Rebuilding Hospitals for the Future (2017) included a “Beam me Better, Scotty” (p. 5) reference. An apt allusion given the opening monologue of the show, “to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldly go where no one has gone before (Shatner & Nemoy, 2007, opening monologue)”. With an ever-growing older adult population looming on the horizon, isn’t that what FNP/AGNP are called upon to do, to boldly seek out new territory? The healthcare system is not prepared to meet the needs of this larger than ever demographic group. To accomplish the task, pioneering of a new landscape for healthcare is long overdue. The Prescription for the Future author writes of the groundbreaking technological advances that can assist healthcare workers with accommodating the many needs of an aging society. Dr. Drychtwald discusses the astounding technological advances throughout history that are still developing. These discoveries have revolutionized healthcare in ways once never thought possible. Such technologies can offer a solution by simultaneously aiding workers with providing necessary healthcare, while supporting dignity and healthy aging in place for older adults. The FNP/AGNP can utilize such technology to reach a wider scope of patients, while still providing accurate and specific diagnostic and interventional care. Admittedly, reading The Economist article, I couldn’t help but be resistant to the proposals for fear of losing the humanistic side of healthcare. It prompted me to ask, “are providers no more than the tasks they deliver?” Locsin’s Theory of Technological Caring provides a bridge for the NP to marry technology and care. He writes of using technology as an extension of caring for a human being and not just a tool used to fix an object. With that premise in mind, technology can be viewed as a way to enhance caring, rather than replacing it. Using his theory as a guiding framework, embracing new technologies, such as command rooms and robotic staff, providers can seek out to better understand the new expanding definition of an older adult’s life and their civilization’s needs (Focused Ultrasound Foundation, 2022; Prescription For the Future, 2017; Locsin 2020).
Dr. Dychtwald states that the most “ageist” people are those that work in the aging field including gerontologists, nurses and other professionals in healthcare. Do you agree with his statement and if so, discuss your rational for why you believe this is the case. What are the implications of an “ageist” attitude on your future ANP/AGNP practice? How do we change this attitude among healthcare professionals?
The demographics in South Florida is often infamous for a surplus of older adults. Working in healthcare, I find that it is a reputation well-earned. Dr. Drychtwaltd highlights in his seminar that healthcare professionals can easily fall prey to ageist attitudes. In my experience, healthcare workers often become desensitizing with constant exposure to increasingly critical older adults and limited resources to properly care for them. Healthcare workers can become disconnected from the beauty of aging and view it as an obstacle to providing excellent care or an easy scapegoat for dismissing elusive diagnoses. As a result, a jaded attitude often prevails. To change this attitude, we need to reinvision aging as Dr. Drychtwaltd recommends. He points out how multiple graduates will receive a degree in healthcare without a single geriatric elective. A sobering statistics given the sheer volume of older adults cared for in South Florida alone and the overwhelming trajectory of the aging boomer generation. Increasing geriatric specialized training would be a wise starting point to change attitudes. Further interventions would be innovations in supporting the aging process, providing proper resources to create a healthy population thereby eliminating some of the obstacles healthcare workers can face in delivery of care with older adults. Hopefully, armed with these tools, FNP/AGNPs can provide highly specialized care that is free of bias as the aging generations deserves (Age Wave, 2016).
