Aging Population in Healthcare

As technology advances the ability of healthcare to keep people alive, in turn the average age of living rises. It is the hope of healthcare providers that quality of life follows suit. However, there are many factors that make this piece of the puzzle challenging. In this course, the older adult population is examined both for the challenges they face and the effects of an increasing elder population on the healthcare delivery system. Specific assessment of the impact of co-morbidities, health disparities, and technological illiteracy/accessibility on older adults is a focus in this course. Extending this assessment, students create a cultural care model for end of life care. These explorations of older adulthood culminate in evaluating the underlying cultural issues that need to be addressed to meet the population health challenges during the end of the life spectrum.
