Do you know that diseases and illnesses present differently in the elderly? Do you know why and do you know how to recognize those differences? This program is part of a series called A New Look at the Old produced in association with the American Journal of Nursing, the Gerontological Society of America and Trinity Healthforce Learning. Topics such as changes related to aging, critical indicators of health problems in the elderly, and presentation of illness are all discussed in this presentation. Illnesses commonly affecting the elderly are also examined. Join Elaine J. Amella, PhD, APPN, BC, Associate Dean for Research and Associate Professor at Medical University of South Carolina College of Nursing for this informative presentation
