Aged Care: Advanced Nursing Skills

As this proportion grows and life expectancies increase, more people will require complex health support. To prevent unnecessary suffering and increased workloads, early identification and management of complex health problems is required. Although there are many basic courses available for aged care nursing there are few short courses that address more complex issues.
