Healthy Ageing CNA750

Note:

This unit uses group work and late enrolment may affect your ability to participate actively.

Introduction

In this unit you will apply the principles of a strengths-based approach in developing your contemporary health professional practice to promote healthy ageing. You will analyse the social, political, cultural and environmental determinants of health and wellness in the older person. Through your growing understanding of the theories of ageing – biological, sociological, psychological and spiritual – you will be able to critically discuss, for example, stereotypes of ageing and their effect on health. By understanding normal ageing and its effect on body systems and functioning, this unit will enhance your assessment of chronic disease, frailty, geriatric syndromes, poly-pharmacy and elder abuse in your practice.
