Highlights the effects of osteoarthritis and osteoporosis, the importance of quality nursing and current approaches to reducing the conditions’ impact.

As Australia's population ages, more people are likely to experience disability as a result of conditions like osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and osteoporosis. But are these conditions just a natural part of ageing?

You will outline the major risk factors for the development of osteoarthritis and osteoporosis in the ageing population and describe the impacts both conditions have on the function and wellbeing of ageing persons.

You will consider the current approaches to reducing the conditions’ impact, look at nursing practices that promote health and mobility in older persons, and discuss strategies that individuals and families can implement to prevent the onset of these diseases or reduce the severity of them.
