Nursing Care of Older Adults DISCUSSION FORUM

I’m studying for my Nursing class and don’t understand how to answer this. Can you help me study?


The topic of our forum this week two will be alternative/complementary therapies. This will include probiotics, supplements, herbal medicines, and other alternative therapies for the older adult.

You will be doing some research on the topic and will present it similarly to the way in which textbook covers in chapter 10. Try to select an herb that is not already discussed in your textbook, such as one of the herbs tested in the ATI pharmacology book. Try to make sure your discussion forum applies to the older adult.

You will be posting your information on research and use of this herbal or other complementary therapy on our discussion forum. I do want the other class members to respond to the postings to let us know their thoughts on the use of this herb, if they think it will work well or if they know of its use. Please respond to TWO CLASSMATES for full CREDIT.

The syllabus provides instructions on how the discussion post will be graded so please follow the grading rubric. DO NOT USE conversation style prose to write your assignment. The discussion should be composed using professional APA format. The discussion should be 3-5 paragraphs in length.

Use APA for intext and reference citations. Proof read your work, as I will be evaluating grammar and sentence structure. The link below is a tool you can use to help with APA format and citations.
