I did use it for some diseases, treatments and nursing actions... you can Google, there are plenty of it.

Ex. Sign of stroke -FAST

F -facial drooping

A -arm weakness

T -time to call 911

Or... DR. TIM to administer medication

D -Right Dosge

R -Right Route

T -Right Time

I - Right Individual/person

M -Right Medication

awesome!

thank you so much. For some reason creating flashcards with triggers and making up sentences helps the information stick but I had trouble trying to incorporate nursing interventions etc

Try putting the word into the Search feature here; I KNOW there are some really good threads on this! I posted some of my faves a few years ago and I bet with a little searching you'll find LOTS. :)
