The purpose of this series is to serve as a Restorative Care training and educational resource. The focus is on the role of RNA's; however, the information in this program can also serve as a training resource for other staff as well. The educational approach used in this series is peer-to-peer instruction. This means you will hear from healthcare professionals who have been involved with successful Restorative Care Programs. Their experience can provide insight and examples of how a program works and its benefits. We will also show real-life examples of how the care that an RNA provides can be life-changing for a resident.

The goal of restorative care nursing is to promote greater functioning and independence for the resident, which in turn can restore their hope, dignity, and well-being. To achieve this, it is important to develop a Restorative Care Program that addresses the resident's individual needs. This program guides RNA's on developing a care plan using MDS 3.0 guidelines that structure the program into two categories: Technique, such as range of motion and splinting, and Training & Skills Practice, such as walking, eating, communication, and grooming.

The program also describes the responsibilities and skills required of the Restorative Nurse Aide, Program Coordinator, and Skilled Therapists. Each one plays a valuable role in providing optimal restorative care to the resident.

After completing this course, the learner should be able to:
  • List some of the basic goals of restorative care
  • Describe the duties of a restorative care program coordinator
  • Give examples of restorative care practices performed by an RNA
  • Give examples of causes that may result in a loss or decline in functioning
  • Give examples of residents who may qualify for restorative care
  • Describe some of the main benefits of a restorative care program
