The INTERACT program includes clinical and educational tools and strategies for use in every day practice in long-term care facilities.

Description

This 15 page guide, conveniently spiral bound and mounted to an easel, provides quickly accessible decision support tools to help nursing staff determine whether to report specific symptoms, signs and lab results to a primary care clinician (MD, NP and/or PA) immediately versus non-immediate.

 

Signs & Symptoms are listed alphabetically and identify which symptoms should be reported immediately or non-immediately.

 

Suggested Use:  Place next to the telephone at the nurse’s station for quick reference.

 

Various signs & symptoms also refer nurses to specific Care Paths (educational decision support tools that provide guidance on the recognition, evaluation, and management of the conditions that commonly cause hospital transfers, and provide guidance on when to notify the primary care clinician). For Care Path reference, see Change in Condition/Care Paths Pocket Guide (item # MP5644GD-4) or Care Paths Guide (item # MP5653-4).
