AbstractPsychiatric and geropsychiatric nurse specialists have the potential to positively influence the day-to-day care provided in rural nursing homes by acting as teachers, resource persons, facilitators, and role models to long-term care (LTC) personnel. The combined approach of training LTC nurses to train their own staff while supporting the application of learning with consultee-focused nursing consultation proved to be an effective and time-efficient method of improving the geropsychiatric nursing care provided in rural nursing homes.
