The Diploma of Ageing Studies and Services addresses the need for holistic knowledge of the ageing process.
This includes knowledge on the social and biological aspects of ageing; chronicity and multimorbidity; age-related discrimination and prejudice; public health understandings; and administrative processes related to policy and aged care.
Globally we face an ageing population and it is vital that our social services and infrastructures are re-imagined and redesigned to support this change.
This course is a fully online, eight-unit program and is suitable for those wanting to or who are working with older adults in aged care, health care or related sectors, such as community-based roles and services. It is the only undergraduate diploma in Australia focusing on ageing studies and services and will bring together the social and health-based perspectives of ageing.
