Conference

Nursing People 85+ Conference

Overview

Increasing numbers of people are living beyond 85 years of age. In 2007, according to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, people aged over 85 made up 1.6% of our population, and this is predicted to increase to between 4.9 and 7.3% by 20561. As people age, they are much more at risk for adverse events such as falling, which can trigger a cascade of disease processes. It is essential that nurses have appropriate gerontological knowledge and skills to perform assessments so as to develop care plans that are risk averse.
