Credit hours: 2 per Semester
Cluster: Gerontology, Non-Nursing Courses


Course Level: Masters

Course Type: PhD


Course Open to:

Institution:The Ohio State University

Pre-requisites: none

Course Description: Never before has it been more important for providers, funders, administrators, and evaluators to work collaboratively to deliver, promote, and assure patient/client centered care. A broad understanding of the social, political, and economic environment that both informs and drives our ability to promote and provide responsive services is crucial yet often difficult to obtain. This course will introduce you to select national, state and local policy issues related to caring for an older population. Regardless of your practice setting, the broader political and social framework and policy considerations impact your ability to serve our aging population. This course will provide you with the opportunity to assess some of these concerns, and then reflect upon how they relate to your work environment. We will focus on major social changes and issues related to the aging of our population and we will use a problem-based approach to address a number of important controversies. Included will be topics such as Social Security, Medicare, long term care, generational equity, entitlements based on age, rationing, family responsibility, and what happens when good people make bad choices. For each topic, the focus will be on how these issues impact upon current practice and how they will continue to challenge practitioners in the future.
