Title: Nursing Leadership in clinical practice: what does it mean for elderly care?
With the aging population there is an increase in the demand for care for the elderly. This higher demand for care not only demands specific care for illnesses and disabilities associated with older age, but it also demands more leadership and management by nurses.
The elderly patients often require help to clarify their care problems, to find the right kind of health problem solutions and to maintain their quality of life.
The aim of this symposium is to highlight the leadership which is increasingly necessary for nurses to have.
Dr Annemarie Vos will present her study aimed at preventing and reducing functional decline in the elderly patient by means of the multidisciplinary Transmural Elderly Care Zeeland (TECZ) methodology. Her presentation is titled: “Optimal care for elderly in transition”
Dr Bianca Buurman will present several acute care models which aim to provide the right care at the right place for elderly patients. Her presentation is titled: “Lost in transition”.
