Introduction

 This unit aims to support your ability to appraise critically attitudes to ageing and aged care in Australia, and to engage in independent inquiry and reflection in the online environment with inter-professional peers and teachers. You will gain an understanding of the lived experiences of older people living in our communities through conversations, stories, literature, and case studies. Issues concerning the health and wellbeing of older people in Australia will be explored through insights into contemporary policy, research, and practices in aged care.
