The Goal

Need for Program

Nurses have already experienced a significant increase in the level of adults 85+ who require nursing care. How an older adult ages will depend on individual strengths, health, the ageing resources available, and the type of care and advice they receive. Focusing only on problems and deficits, and negative perspectives of ageing, limits wellbeing and increases vulnerability towards functional decline, chronic illness, and other conditions. Preventing insults is particularly important in this age group in order to prevent the cascade of morbidity that can result. As such, it is imperative that access to evidence-based, gerontological knowledge is available in order to provide age appropriate positive nursing care.

Purpose of Program

To provide nurses with knowledge that integrates a positive approach to ageing with the delivery of appropriate nursing care for adults aged 85+.

Your learning outcomes:

Use a positive approach ageing framework to nurse older adults that reduces their vulnerability towards health decline and dependence
Formulate nursing care plans that are based on a comprehensive age appropriate assessment which includes physical abilities, cognitive function, and social support
Combine knowledge, skills and practice of evidenced nursing care to improve wellness outcomes in older adults
Collaborate with the health team members, and relevant family or carers to promote maximum functional independence and wellbeing
