NICHE is a leader in delivering evidence-based best practices and tools for improving care for older adults. The program provides health systems and geriatric care institutions with resources to create an action plan and achieve on-site goals, while earning Continuing Education credits. NICHE will help nurses identify, interpret, and apply evidence based practice to optimize both care outcomes and improve the patient/family experience.
NICHE has developed a Patient and Family Advisory Council Organizational Strategy to support hospitals and other healthcare organizations in their commitment to improving care for older adults. A Patient and Family Advisory Council connects patients and caregivers with health care administration to promote communication and provide guidance on how to improve the patient and caregiver experience.
NICHE membership is available to acute care facilities as well as long-term care facilities. Membership is only available to facilities who provide care.
