Public Health Implications of an Ageing Population
The course aims to address the intersection between public health and ageing, and will take a population view of ageing from across a number of public health perspectives. These include the demographic transition and the impact on population profile, health and welfare costs, and health care delivery; the need to refocus public health priorities to address the changing needs of an ageing population; psychosocial and behavioural aspects of ageing and their impact on health and well being; epidemic and emergent conditions of ageing and their prevention and management; and the use of probabilistic approaches to provide more rational, effective and safe health care for older people.
