Geriatric Care: Chronic Conditions and Risk Factors
Geriatric Care: Chronic Conditions and Risk Factors

Chronic conditions are more likely to occur as individuals age. Conditions such as arthritis, hypertension, osteoporosis, and Alzheimer’s disease mainly occur in older adults. The presence of multiple comorbidities has substantial impacts on an older adult's physical and mental well-being. As a healthcare professional who cares for older adults, you rarely encounter an older adult without a chronic condition. This course discusses chronic conditions commonly seen in older adults, how to manage these conditions, and how to decrease risk factors associated with these conditions. Without the management of chronic conditions and risk factors, older adults decrease their quality of life and life expectancy. The goal of this course is to educate nursing professionals in all healthcare settings on chronic conditions and the management of these conditions in older adults.
