The prevention and/or management of geriatric syndromes will incorporate the knowledge of normal physiological and psychological changes of aging, the application of age-appropriate assessment skills, and the identification of health promotion strategies to foster maintenance and independence. The importance of effective communication to facilitate ethical decision-making will be addressed, as well as the utilization of family, community, governmental, and inter-professional resources related to care of the older adult. Regulatory agencies, healthcare law, policy and advocacy will be explored within the context of patient quality and safety.
