NUR104 Contexts of Practice: The Older Person and Family

Health professionals promote, maintain and restore the health and wellbeing of the older person and their families in diverse health service settings which may include hospital, community and the home. You will explore biophysiological and psychosocial processes associated with ageing as well as consider how older people respond and adapt to health challenges. You will learn the principles for practice which support optimal health outcomes in ways which are responsive, evidence based, and which promote autonomy and agency using the frameworks of Social Justice and Person-Centred care. The importance of Aged Care Quality Standards in ensuring safe quality care in aged care facilities is emphasised.
