Gerontology – 6 CEUs

Older adults are the fastest growing segment of our population and will require nurses and other health practitioners who are trained in their special needs. A strong foundation on the normal aging process leads to sections on promoting health and wellness among the elderly. Specialist practitioners discuss the most common health care problems of the elderly and their related care needs. Also learn the latest thinking on current topics such as the financial, legal, and ethical issues that older patients and their families face, the importance of becoming an advocate for excellent elderly care, and meeting the special needs of diverse ethnic and cultural groups.
