Behavioral Perspectives of Lifespan

Explain why it is important for nurses, midwives, or paramedics to have knowledge and understanding of the topic/issue (keeping in mind the key principle of life course development that lives are lived interdependently, not independently e.g. knowledge of child development is not only important for paediatric and child health nurses, it is important for all nurses because they provide care to adults who have children and grandchildren).  Describe how this knowledge and understanding might influence your future practice. Will it influence the care you give? How? Why?  Briefly outline a research project that nurses, midwives, or paramedics could undertake to increase knowledge and understanding of the topic/issue or help translate existing evidence-based knowledge to practice.
