Session 01: Geriatric Care
Geriatric Care is nothing but the process of planning and coordinating the care of the elderly with physical and mental impairments to meet their long term needs, improve their quality of life, and maintain their independence for as long as possible. The comprehensive assessment consists of primary intake assessment which includes demographic type data as well as a health history, social history, and legal/financial history. From there, a medication profile assessment is included, as well as an assessment of ADLs (Activities of Daily Living) and IADLs (Instrumental Activities of Daily Living). In addition other assessments may include; Falls risk assessment, Home safety assessment, Nutritional assessment, Depression assessment, Pain assessment, MiniCog Clock Drawing Exam (Cognitive Assessment), Balance assessment, and Gait assessment(ability to walk). If the comprehensive geriatric care management assessment is being conducted by a Registered Nurse, then a physical assessment can be included such as vital signs recording temperature, pulse, respirations, blood pressure, oxygen saturation, and sometimes FBS or RBS (Fasting or Random Blood Sugar) checks for diabetics. In addition, physical assessments in areas such as cardiopulmonary, gastrointestinal, musculoskeletal, genitourinary, eyes/ears/nose/throat, integumentary (skin), lower extremities inspection, as well as a modified neuro assessment and medication compliance assessment.

The best treatment plan for cancer depends on general health, lifestyle, wishes, and other factors. Cancer of the elderly exhibits slower growth because their body already has a slower rate of cell development than those of young ones. However, some data show that elderly with tumors have worse prognosis because of delayed diagnosis. Thus, the elderly should learn about the right attitude and knowledge to combat cancer. Anticancer treatments are sometimes devastating. The most feared treatment is chemotherapy, which was indicated by 58% of the sample as something deleterious, and 51% believe that the treatment could not be resisted if they would receive it. 48.3% believe that radiotherapy is dangerous. As the side effects of these treatments, 54% stated that anesthesia is a very risky procedure, and 29% indicated that vomiting due to chemotherapy is unavoidable. 29% of elderly affirmed that the treatment for cancer is worse than the disease itself, and 34% preferred not to receive any treatment in case of developing cancer.
Session 07: Geriatrics Heart Health
Heart disease is a major threat to senior health and the No. 1 cause of death. Heart failure, heart attack, irregular heartbeat, coronary artery disease, and atrial fibrillation are common reasons for health visits and hospital stays. Normal aging causes your heart and blood vessels to stiffen, which can lead to these conditions in later years. For people older than 75, high blood pressure is the most common heart condition.

Geriatric Nursing is a comprehensive source for clinical information and management advice relating to the care of older adults. Geriatric nurses are some of the most important professionals in this field, specially trained to be able to perform traditional nursing duties with unique needs. A geriatric nurse should be responsible for –

Session 09: Bone Health in Geriatrics
As we age, our bodies go through a number of changes that make it difficult for us to get around as easily as we once could. Seniors may also become less mobile as a result of bone diseases such as osteoporosis. Some bone problems that occur in old age are Paget’s disease, Rheumatoid arthritis, Osteoporosis.
Uniquely expanded bone resorption prompts the underlying fall in bone mineral thickness. With expanding age, there is likewise a huge decrease in the bone arrangement. This is for the most part because of a move from osteoblast genesis to dominating adipogenesis in the bone marrow, which likewise has a lipotoxic impact that influences lattice development and mineralization.
Session10: Geriatric Endocrinology and Diabetes
Critical advances in prosperity and social success have provoked direct gains in the future and running with augmentation in the weight forced by age-related morbidities. Complex alterations in hormonal systems that control homeostasis and survival may underlie this poor change in accordance with later life. Both the menopause and sub-clinical thyroid illness demonstrate the inconvenience in pivoting endocrine changes in later life. In maturity (60– 65 years old), Diabetes mellitus is turning into a disturbing general medical problem. Among the elderly populace, type 2 diabetes is a developing issue, and a greater degree of as of late dissected diabetics is more seasoned.
Adult hypopituitarism, hypothyroidism, osteoporosis, diabetes mellitus, adrenal insufficiency, various forms of hypogonadism, and endocrine malignancies are all more frequent in old age.

By 2030, it’s calculable that the US population of individuals aged 65 and over can double create up over 20% or concerning 70 million of the country’s population. Because the baby boomers enter the geriatric population, this has the potential to staggeringly increasing the nation’s already high health care prices. The U.S. population is “graying” at a speedy rate. As per information revealed by the global organization in 2014, it’s been calculable that by the year 2022, close to 35% of the population would be on top of 60 years more mature. In Europe 2013 the population of the EU (28 countries) was roughly 507 million. Projections show an increase within the European population of over 18 million (3.6%) within the next 35 years, with the population peaking in 2050 at 525.5 million. The median age in Europe was up by 8.3 years within half a century, from 31.5 in 1960 to 39.8 in 2010. It’s projected to rise by another 7.4 years, to 47.2, by 2050. The share of Europeans aged over 65 is projected to rise from 16.0% in 2017 to 29.3% in 2050. The Europeans population aged over 80 is about to rise considerably. In 1960 simply 1.4% of Europeans were over 80. This figure reached 4.1% in 2010 and is projected to extend to 11.5% by 2050. The center east can develop aging populations inside the ensuing few decades. Several factors have resulted in increased within the aged as well as improvement in living standards, the edge of disease, and also the latest breakthroughs in bioscience.
The World Health Organization estimates that from 2000 to 2050, the speed of growth of the population on top of age 65 is projected to be 4%–5%, and also the average annual growth rate of the oldest old (85 years and older) can exceed 5% in 11 Arab countries. The Asia-Pacific region is undergoing profound and speedy population changes. All countries in Asia and also the Pacific are in the process of aging at an unprecedented pace, though the timing and pace of this transition vary across the region. In 2016, approximately 12.4% of the population within the region was 60 years or older; however, this can be projected to extend to quite 1/4 (quarter) or 1.3 billion individuals by 2050. By 2050, nearly 8 in 10 of the world’s older population can board the less developed regions. This can be particularly pertinent for a region like Asia and also the Pacific.
