About the Course

It is astounding to think that a little more than 100 years ago, the average life expectancy was 48 years. With the amazing advances in science, technology, and overall living conditions during the last century, the older adult population has grown substantially. Being aware of shifting demographics, leading causes of death and related preventive measures, and how to support seniors in adopting healthy behaviors is key to being able to maximally support the elders of the population to enjoy healthy living and aging. This course provides nurses and healthcare professionals with the additional knowledge to help encourage, teach, and guide older adults to actively practice healthy lifestyles for optimal living. The course presents the needs of the older adult patient to help healthcare professionals develop person-centered plans to provide satisfactory care and improve patient outcomes. Additionally, the course will set the stage for developing a healthier society for all to age well and successfully.
