NURS 6540 - Advanced Practice Care of Frail Elders


(5 cr.)
The frail elderly are a subpopulation characterized by the decline in functional ability to meet the basic activities of daily living. In this course, students focus on the complex health care and management needs of the frail elderly by advanced nurse practitioners in community settings. Students learn to plan, implement, and evaluate therapeutic regimens through the analysis of case studies and the actual care of frail elderly in various settings. Additionally, students examine content related to end-of-life care and caregiver issues to gain the knowledge and sensibilities needed to implement positive change for the quality of life available to this vulnerable population.
