PGCert in Older People's care, This course produces practitioners who are advocates for older people and their carers.
Certificates in Geriatric Nursing.
This course seeks to produce practitioners who embody good practice, are clinical leaders and advocates for older people and their carers. It will develop your skills with a view to not only producing excellence in care but flexibility and self-confidence in the practitioner.
The need for the further development of appropriate skills, competencies and attitudes in caring for older people has been widely recognised. Changing demographics, treatments, technology and expectations are all powerfully influencing the development of older people’s care as a speciality.
This course sees the care of older people as collaborative and inter-disciplinary with a positive view towards the possibilities of longer, healthier lives and the need to address those matters of ill health, which can threaten the quality of later life. Within the course, we will, therefore, place interdisciplinary practice in all modules as the primary model of care.
The values of compassion, dignity and empathy are central to all teaching and we will work with you in a way that emphasises these values and allows them to permeate your professional development. We view patient care as collaborative; working alongside older people and their families with an approach that embraces the complexity of care and jointly developing solutions to these complexities.
