Geriatric Care: An Overview for Texas Nurses – N1829

This course addresses some of the more common age-related health concerns, including elder abuse, memory changes, and common chronic conditions associated with aging, and discusses how healthcare professionals can help older adults manage these conditions. It is important for nurses to be aware of the factors that interfere with successful aging and the factors that encourage a healthy lifestyle. Means of coping with loss, disability, and chronic conditions are discussed along with measures that promote a healthy lifestyle. Depression and options for its treatment are described, as well as prevention. Because the incidence of cancer increases with age, information on cancer symptoms and detection is presented. Prevention and treatment of such common problems as hearing loss, hypertension, and incontinence – as well as coping with these conditions – are also discussed. Because stroke, arthritis, and osteoporosis all have the potential to negatively affect functional status, these conditions are also reviewed.
