Excellent Toolkits from AANP

One of our scholarship nurses Jenn Tucker, RN posted this great informational from American Academy of Nurse Practioners. On their website AANP Toolkit they have a tab dedicated to "Education". Under this tab, they have various different types of education for nurses, nursing professionals, or moms, dads, grandparents or whoever!

The topic I looked at is Safety Matters: Pediatric Medication Safety

What an excellent resource for parents- it had all the information you will ever need when it comes to giving your child a medication- right down to the specifics on the medication bottle you receive from the pharmacist. Excellent!

The other topics on the website include:
- A Pathway to Better Health
- A Road Map to Managing your Triglycerides and Protecting Your Heart
- Fibromyalgia
- von Willebrand Disease
- Road Map to Teen Health: Adolescent Health Promotion
- A Breath of Fresh Air: Living with COPD
- Preceptor NP

A major tip when using this website, download or save the pdf to your computer. It saves time and is sooo much faster than trying to toggle through the pages on the actual website.

The great thing about these toolkit is they are designed by AANP's as they are desgined to keep Nurse Practioners informed on important health issues and to assist them in educating their patients.  There are new toolkits being developed all the time, so check back at their website frequently for more information.
