This subject expands upon students' existing knowledge of adult nursing care with an emphasis on normal ageing processes and associated changing health risk and their implications for the older person and nursing practice. The role of the nurse in the context of an ageing population and primary health care models are emphasised from both institutional and community perspectives. Principles of strengths based nursing, health promotion and health education, in care of the older person are also emphasised.
