Complete this course to earn 1 CPD hour

Provides nurses with an Australian consumer viewpoint on aged care services, presenting the drivers for change

Acknowledging the impacts of an ageing population has led many developed countries to rethink their systems of aged care and support, and here in Australia, the scene is now set for a new wave of aged care reforms.

This module helps nurses to look at Australia’s aged care services from the perspective of the consumer, rather than the care-giver. It provides an economic view on the reform of aged care in this country and identifies the key drivers for change in aged care based on both Australian and international evidence.

Written by Glenn Rees, one of Australia’s most influential lobbyists for consumers, the module addresses the issues of

  • consumer choice and empowerment
  • the quality of existing residential care, including the use of chemical and physical restraints
  • community care
  • aged care research and knowledge translation
  • dementia services across health and aged care

and more.

Completing this online module accumulates one hour of CPD for nurses.
