Programme Friday 7 October 2016 09.00 – 14.30 hrs Topic: Transitional care Getting transition care of older people right Prof. Marit Kirkevold Ed.D. Head of Department of Nursing Science, Institute of Health and Society, University of Oslo, Norway In her presentation Marit Kirkevold will draw on research about the many transitions that older people undergo as they age and are challenged to cope with and adjust to changes in health state, functioning, social relations and roles and service- and care levels. Lack of understanding about the nature of these transitions may lead to suboptimal services and care. She will reflect on how this knowledge may inform us in designing care that matches the caring needs of older people in different transition situations, at the same time acknowledging and respecting the older people’s own preferences, coping resources and self-care abilities.
