Theoretical and practical basis of advanced family nursing practice in primary care with a focus on the mature and aging family is the focus of this course. Acute, episodic, and chronic health problems of this population are studied. Illness assessment and interventions are examined with ethical and legal implication within a multicultural population for individuals and aggregates. Research, collaboration and use of both medical and social resources are incorporated, with the focus on critical evaluation of the whole person within the family setting.
Portions of this course will be delivered online.
