Health Reform and Older People
The health care system needs to evolve if it is to adequately meet the needs of an ageing population. Ensuring clinicians have skills in care of older people, responsive and flexible workforce models, an increased focus on person centred care and models of care that facilitate independence rather than re-enforce dependence are all critical for the future.
This webinar will feature speakers from New Zealand and Victoria, Australia and will provide an insight into the strengths and weaknesses of unitary versus multi-level systems of government and how they influence health policy and practice reform.
Carolyn Gullery will share learnings from the Canterbury District Health Board’s experience of implementing an integrated health care system which was sustainable for the future and focused on a shared vision of a connected system. She will highlight how the Canterbury integrated system succeeded in working through the major earthquakes that struck in 2010/2011.
Associate Professor Peter Hunter will provide an overview of the Victorian Governments Clinical Leadership Group on care of older people in hospital initiative. He will highlight the process involved in the reform process and the successes, gaps and opportunities for the future.
