In this course, you will explore several key variables influencing healthcare for the senior population, including changing demographic trends, cultural diversity, and socioeconomic status. Caring for adults requires an awareness of these changing variables as they impact the health and healthcare of the senior population. You will examine the ways that cultural diversity challenges healthcare management. You will also see that socioeconomic variables play a major role: Chronic illness often reduces an individual's ability to live independently, and decline in functional ability results in greater reliance on others that, in turn, affects the families and caregivers of the senior population. Finally, you will examine some of the legal and regulatory issues in the long-term care industry as well as ethical dilemmas concerning patient rights, self-determination, and advance directives to guide end-of-life care. This activity is intended for nurses.
