Introduction

In this module, you will learn about the development of population structure and the main factors which influence it (fertility and mortality). You will also learn how this development will impact on the provision and financing of health and social care and on the roles of families in providing care and support for older family members.

Learning outcomes

The overall learning outcome is an acquirement of knowledge about the development of population structure and the demographic factors driving this development along with the impact of this development on the provision and financing of health and social care and on the roles of families in providing care and support for older family members.

However, your personal learning outcomes will to a great extent be determined by your own personal and professional circumstances and approach to the content of the module.

For example, you may simply be working through this module from a pure interest point of view – in other words “I have heard and read so much about this demographic developmentand the challenges it presents, that I want to know more about it”.

Or you may be a (potential) family carer of an older member of your family and you therefore have a very personal interest in understanding these demographics and their implications.

Or you may be a professional carer and although you have a sound knowledge of caring for older people, the challenges of the future arising from this demographic development are unknown to you.
