New Approaches to Aged Care - critical research perspectives from Denmark and Australia

The workshop presents new research examining social and economic aspects of aged care services, with an opportunity to discuss the details of theory, research design and methodology. The centrepiece is an important new Danish study of the significance of reablement approaches, presenting by the distinguished visiting scholar, Professor Tine Rostgaard. Three further papers explore topics and perspectives on the funding of aged care. The workshop will be of interest to postgraduate students and researchers working on aged care, and to those with an interest in recent changes to policy.

  • Learn about current critical research in-progress.
  • Discuss theory and methodology behind the research.
  • Meet others working on social research
