Aged Care Nursing: Improving Quality of Life Conference is organized by Ausmed Education Pty Ltd and will be held from Sep 09 - 10, 2021 at Holiday Inn Perth City Centre, Perth, Western Australia, Australia. Accreditation: CPD: 11h Why Attend: Growing old with purpose and maintaining control of our lives is surely the ultimate challenge that most of us will face. How we help others to do this is imperative. This is one conference you must not miss. It includes: • Are medicines a help or a hindrance? • How can we assist a person to remain independent for as long as possible? • What are the current hot topics in aged care? • What is elder abuse and what are the mandatory reporting requirements? • Which common medical problems impair independence? • What does ‘quality of life’ mean for the older person? • What are advance care directives? • How can you attune your care to the wishes of the person? Need for Program: The age of the population is increasing and this is not likely to change. As well, the provision of care for older people is currently under the spotlight for a range of negative reasons. Assisting an older person to remain well, to live with purpose, and to maintain as much control of their life as possible requires staff who are knowledgeable about normal ageing and skilled in holistic care. Purpose of Program This conference provides nurses and related health professionals with specialist knowledge that enables empathetic, holistic care of older adults. Learning Outcomes: • Respond to the needs of older people who require person-centred care • Plan holistic care in conjunction with older people, who have chronic conditions, that is attuned to their desired outcomes • Develop and document care plans that are based on the individual’s preference and current evidence relating to their specific needs • Improve the wellbeing of older people by implementing a range of simple but effective activities
