In-service ideas for IDD Program Nurse

Specialties Disabilities


Hi Guys! I just got a job as a program nurse in charge of the nursing care of a group of residents in ICF's in my county.

I'll be doing a lot of staff educational in-services and I know I'm jumping the gun here by thinking up future topics but I'm pretty excited to get going!

What are some solid topics for in-services to benefit the IDD community? All responses welcomes, and single word/list of replies are very appreciated as well!! Super Big Bonus if you have suggestions for fun teambuilding exercises!

Thank you and have a very great day ya'll.
