For courses in Nursing Older Adults, Gerontological Nursing and Aged Care.
As the current Australian population ages, care of older adults is becoming increasingly important. For nurses, this provides career opportunities that can encompass advanced nursing practice, management, education and policy governance.
This text introduces the many screening, assessment and interventions nurses use on a daily basis in their care delivery to older adults in Australia. Each chapter includes information on data collection and the development of a portfolio to aid a student’s career planning, by demonstrating through reflection and organisation their previous experience and learning opportunities.
