NURSING OLDER PEOPLE

NSG3NOP

2015

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

In this subject students will encounter the health needs of older people in diverse settings, but particularly in acute care settings. They will consider the biopsychosocial aspects of ageing, older persons' responses to multiple pathology and recent advances in the ability to regulate the biology of ageing. They will further develop skills in advanced nursing assessment. The importance of the nursing roles in promoting, maintaining, and restoring the health of older adults will be a major focus. Consideration will be given to the potential negative impact of care on the older individual's ability to live a meaningful, productive, autonomous and responsible life.
