You will need to describe the issues in your case study, and then undertake a process of analysis in order to generate a comprehensive nursing plan of care. Practising this process of analysis will help you to feel more confident in providing nursing care to an older person in the clinical setting.
Your case study must:
- Reflect upon the impact that various stereotypes of older people may have on the older person and their nursing care;
- Recommend the nursing requirements for older people diagnosed with, or at risk of, complex health conditions and/or cognitive decline; and
- Evaluate the outcomes for nursing care of older people.
