Sue Lawrence on what’s holding back gerontic nursing

In the latest installment of Aged Care Insite‘s series on the challenges and issues facing gerontological nurses, Dr Sue Lawrence, a lecturer in nursing at the University of Tasmania, discusses the barriers to the development of gerontic nursing as a recognised speciality.

In the interview, Lawrence points towards a lack of the use of the term gerontic nursing and the absence of a dedicated nursing association.

The previous installment in the series featured professor Wendy Moyle.
