Diabetes is emerging as a serious epidemic among older adults (65 years of age or older) with limited quality care and education currently available to effectively address this public health challenge in New York City (NYC). To effectively address this challenge, the New York University College of Nursing’s (NYUCN) Nursing Faculty Practice (NFP) proposes to establish a geriatric-specific diabetes self-management/training program as a satellite of the New York University Langone Medical Center Diabetes Center..
In 2011 the New York University College of Nursing launched a national initiative, Oral Health Nursing Education and Practice (OHNEP), and part of the National Interprofessional Initiative on Oral Health (NIIOH) funded by DentaQuest Foundation, Washington Dental Service Foundation, and Connecticut Health Foundation. New York University College of Nursing proposed to develop and demonstrate the impact of a replicable model for implementing and disseminating a comprehensive oral health curriculum in nursing schools throughout the US as well as best practices for oral health care in nurse managed primary care settings. With the support of the leadership from both schools, NYUCN is leading this national initiative to enhance the oral health curriculum at all levels of nursing education.
