Newest in the American Journal of Nursing (AJN) resource base is the How to Try This series, a John A.

This initiative will translate the evidence-based geriatric assessment tools in the Try This assessment series into cost-free, web-based resources including demonstration videos, and a corresponding print series featured in the AJN, developed to build geriatric assessment skills - the foundation for appropriate care of older adults. Also available are the articles and case-study videos in the New Look at the Old series, a collaborative effort between the AJN and the Gerontological Society of America, supported with funding from the Atlantic Philanthropies.

All of these materials are available at no cost.
