Aged Care Law, Ethics and Culturally Safe Practice

Unit Code: LWQ635

Contact hours: 12–15 hours per week

Unit Description

Australia’s ageing population means there is a growing need for healthcare services to respond to the holistic needs of the elderly, in a way that ensures culturally safe, person-centred care.

This unit addresses a range of legal, ethical and social issues currently faced by the aged care profession, older persons, their carers and families within the health system. You will have an opportunity to critically evaluate the rights and responsibilities of both older people and professionals, and consider relevant ethical implications and how they might be navigated.
