Innovative health service provision in residential aged care settings
Ensuring residents have access to the required health services in residential aged care settings presents a challenge for providers. To meet this need Bupa has developed the Bupa Model of Care that aims to provide proactive, present, quality medical care to residents that impacts directly upon care home clinical metrics. The engagement of medical practitioners within homes has created an environment that is positive for residents and their relatives, meaningful for practitioners, and supportive for other staff in the home. This model is now being differentiated to embrace locally relevant models of care and to include clinical teaching and aged care research within the home.
By attending this webinar you will learn more about:
- Models for engaging medical practitioners within homes
- Leading virtual consultations as geriatricians and other specialists as a normalised part of care in homes
- Becoming involved in aged care networks across aged care facilities
- Influencing future care across ageing including community, retirement living and aged care facilities
- Opportunities to partner at scale for research purposes
- Opportunities for medical student/registrar involvement with care in homes
Dr Tim Ross MBBS FRACGP
Tim is the Medical Services Director for Bupa Villages and Aged Care, Australia New Zealand. His four years with Bupa include this role and as a National Medical Director across all Bupa businesses prior to that. Having chalked up 20 years in general practice, he has just cut the cord from direct patient-facing work.
Tim graduated from Monash University in 1995 and went on to gain his FRACGP in 2000. His career has involved general practice in urban, rural and regional locations, as well as overseas in the U.K. He has spent time working for the RACGP training program and in the Department of General Practice at the University of Melbourne, bringing this back to his practice as a GP supervisor and teaching medical students. He was the tournament doctor at the Kooyong Classic tennis tournament for 11 events.
Representative work has included the General Practice Registrars Association committee, Clinical Council of the Eastern Melbourne PHN, and Board positions with AMA Victoria and AMA Federal, the Greater South Eastern Division of General Practice, and RACGP Victoria Faculty.
Clinically, the 3 Ps have always interested him: prevention, paediatrics and procedures. With his work at Bupa, he has moved to a fourth: populations, now focusing on caring for our ageing population.
In his spare time, he is always planning his next trip as a travel junkie, while trying to stay fit in his middle age by taking on triathlons and keeping up with an active family.
