Primary Care of the Older Adult Practicum

Description:
Students further refine skills in critical thinking and clinical reasoning in the application of theory and research to practice. Assessment, diagnostic, therapeutic, and health teaching strategies are applied to a continuum of health promotion/illness problems with a focus on the primary care of adults and older adults across the continuum of care. Students build skills in seeing increasingly complex patients with a combination of higher risk, acute illness, and chronic health problems where atypical disease presentation and challenges to disease treatment exist. Seminars are grounded in learning the application of theory and research to the domains of practice of the adult/gerontological nurse practitioner including the management of patient health and illness, the teaching-coaching function of the nurse practitioner, and ensuring the quality of health care services. Interdisciplinary collaborative practice skills are developed. Students develop role competencies under the supervision of nurse practitioner or physician preceptors and faculty in a variety of health care settings. Seminar discussions include an exploration of special topics in disease management to improve quality, access and cost of primary health care for diverse populations (or communities) with an emphasis on underserved populations, where diversity includes age, gender, race/ethnicity, culture, religion, language, sexual orientation, abilities, and socioeconomic status.
