About

This articulated, multidisciplinary program in Applied Gerontology from Flinders University was developed to address the professional needs of graduates involved with policy, planning, and research or service delivery for older people, as well as those who are interested in understanding the issues surrounding the ageing process.

These courses feature seven key perspectives throughout each topic:

  • healthy, positive ageing
  • life-course framework for understanding ageing
  • multidisciplinary approach
  • multicultural awareness and a global viewpoint
  • lifelong learning and e-learning for improving professional practice
  • research, evaluation and evidence-based planning and service delivery
  • ethical decision making.

Career

Career opportunities in gerontology are expanding rapidly with global ageing. Gerontologists work in a range of employment settings including aged care homes, community care and acute hospitals as well as local, state and federal government departments, policy and advocacy organisations, universities and the private sector. Nurses, physicians, allied health and non-clinicians from a range of professions will be able to use gerontological knowledge to inform policy, planning and practice.

Insights from gerontologists can provide companies in various fields a competitive edge and their specialised knowledge can help to better identify and respond to the needs of older adults, and address ageing stereotypes and misrepresentations. Especially exciting is the growth in entrepreneurial gerontology by which gerontologists are able to assess, identify, develop and offer programs, products and services to meet the unique and varied needs of older adults.
