LO 1: Examine the relationship between the aging population and the health care priorities within nursing practice today.
L O 2: Evaluate evidence-base for the assessment, planning and evaluation of holistic and compassionate care for older adults and their families.
L O 3: Evaluate the concept of healthy ageing and the national and international strategies for health promotion.
L O 4: Critically explore the effectiveness of nursing theories and approaches to working with older people who have complex needs.

Summative assessment will be in the form of an essay that will examine the theoretical and legislative perspective of positive approaches to nursing care that support older people making use of the agreed case study to demonstrate the application of this knowledge, 2,500 words (LO 1,2,& 4). This assignment will also include a 1,000 word plan of care relating to the case study submitted as the formative element (LO 3).

The physiotherapist and OT can assist in planning her early mobilisation and help with the identification of factors that increase her risk of falling. The pharmacist can review medication that may affect her risk of falling, inform dose, timing of administration etc.

Her continence affects the frequency of times she needs to move.

She is blind but has some peripheral vision and may forget where she is, orientation to her new surroundings and how to call for assistance may give her confidence to mobilise safely.
