Incorporate professional values, attitudes, and expectations regarding ageism when caring for the older adult.
Outline the importance of advocating for older adults in management of their care.
Your supervisor provided some valuable feedback in response to your outline! They are excited to see the PowerPoint slideshow you are creating for your topic’s in-service training. Having developed a number of presentations for in-services, your supervisor offered the following advice:
“When developing a slideshow, it’s important to be mindful of how you layout your content. For an in-service presentation, the slides should present key points, be arranged logically, without extraneous information contributing to a cluttered look. The audience should get a lot of the content from listening to what you say, not just from reading the slides. Using the Speaker Notes feature in PowerPoint is a great way to include relevant details that you want to provide without overloading the slides.”
Your supervisor wants you to work from your outline and prepare a visually appealing PowerPoint slideshow for the in-service presentation. They said it should:
Have a title slide.
Contain 6-10 content slides pertaining to the important content areas for your presentation topic.
Use the Speaker Notes feature in PowerPoint to reduce the amount of text that appears on the slides. (The Speaker Notes will contain the text that will guide what you say while presenting the slides.)
Be written using proper spelling/grammar.
Cite at least 2 credible references and present the sources in APA format on a References slide. For information about creating PowerPoint presentations or adding Speaker Notes, consult the resources below.

Care of Elderly Hypertensive Patients in Minnesota
Care of Elderly Hypertensive Patients in Minnesota
Hypertension is a chronic illness that affects millions of people across the globe. The twenty-first century has particularly been plagued with lifestyle diseases, and hypertension has been among those whose prevalence has increased. Multiple factors have contributed to this phenomenon. Among them are improved living standards so people can access better healthcare. Thus, the disease is effectively diagnosed and managed with minimal complications. The result has been increased life expectancy. The elderly population with hypertension thus present a special challenge in meeting their needs. The United States has taken various measures to deliver patient-centred care to its citizens. Minnesota is one such state that has dedicated itself to channeling state and national resources toward enabling a safe and effective formula to transition care to older patients.
Caring for Elderly Hypertensive Patients in Minnesota
I. Hypertension is a chronic illness that affects millions of people across the globe.
A. The twenty-first century has particularly been plagued with diseases
B. Multiple factors have contributed to this phenomenon
1. Improvement in standards of living is a cause of increasing chronic conditions (Brewer et al., 2020).
C. The elderly population with hypertension present a special challenge in meeting their needs.
D. The United States has taken various measures to deliver patient-centred care to its citizens.
1. Minnesota is one such state that has dedicated itself to channelling state and national resources toward enabling a safe and effective formula to transition care to older patients (Brewer et al., 2020).
II. Equipping telenursing communication in Minnesota is an important adjunct in transitioning care.
A. Telenursing is among the modern means of patient follow-up.
Telenursing has increased patient independence outside the hospital environment (Madadkar et al., 2021).
2. The use of telenursing reduces the number of hospital visits post-admission and smooth transitions for elderly patients in Minnesota (Brewer et al., 2020).
B. Digital knowledge is now a basic requirement for healthcare practitioners in Minnesota.
1. The use of modern technologies such as video conferencing apps necessitates that care providers be conversant with them for smooth service delivery (Brewer et al., 2020).
III. Health information systems (HISs) are an important centre in care transitions.
A. HISs such as electronic health records are among Minnesota’s new service delivery trends.
1. Well-designed electronic health records are hack-proof to guarantee patient information privacy while allowing easy follow-up on hypertensive patients between different care providers (Brewer et al., 2020).
2. The EHR is central to keeping long-term data for chronic illnesses such as hypertension, allowing early detection of complications (Brewer et al., 2020).
B. Effective working of HIS requires that most elderly patients with hypertension have access to digital communication.
1. Conscious efforts have been undertaken in Minnesota to link the care centre with family caregivers who are likely to be conversant with the use of modern technology (Brewer et al., 2020).
C. The need to have family caregivers is important, especially for very elderly patients.
1. At a very advanced age, senile problems such as dementia render one dependent on care providers (Madadkar et al., 2021).
2. Care providers with good access to digital healthcare ensure the elderly population is well cared for (Madadkar et al., 2021).
Care for the elderly with chronic comorbidities such as hypertension requires an effective transition from the hospital to a remote setting. Minnesota is well aware of the importance of using technology and family caregivers in making the transition possible. Thus significant resources have been channelled to platforms such as telehealth and health information systems up to date with the latest technology. There is also a conscious effort to ensure there are family caregivers for the elderly with hypertension to meet their requirements. Ultimately, the quality of life will be prolonged even more through the facilitation of effective care transition.
