A “competency” is a set of knowledge, skills, and abilities that allow a person to perform a task. Healthcare staff in the ambulatory surgery center must develop and demonstrate competencies related to patient care. Age-specific competencies require caregivers to provide care according to a patient’s chronological age, developmental age, and maturity level. Age-specific competencies improve the quality of patient care and assist ambulatory surgery centers to comply with accreditation standards and state laws. Nurses and other healthcare professionals are expected to incorporate age specific competencies into their daily care. This course will discuss important age-specific characteristics and care needs of adult patients.
