This is a core/degree elective unit in the Bachelor of Dementia Care. This unit is also available to students from other courses, subject to meeting any prerequisites.
This unit addresses issues concerning the health and well-being of older people in our society through developing students’ capacity for critical insights into contemporary policy. You will gain knowledge of the evidence base which supports government policy and decision-making in relation to aged and dementia care.
This unit contains contemporary information about population trends in ageing communities with time spent both examining the ageing population in Australia and internationally. We aim to challenge your thinking about older people and people from cultural and social situations different to your own, and introduce you to the wider contexts in which dementia and dementia care occur.
