Providing Quality Care in Residential Aged Care Facilities: Current Research
Residents of aged care facilities are likely to experience a range of comorbidities. To optimise their physical, functional and social health, quality, evidence based management is required. In this seminar, we will consider three commonly managed areas.
Joan Ostaszkiewicz will speak about research initiatives to enhance continence care in Australian residential aged care facilities. Jan Taylor will present her research on a collaborative and integrated approach to resident mobility care. Dr Pamela Johnson - will discuss the assessment of pain in residential aged care facilities.
- Learn the importance of adequate assessment of pain and the need to educate all aged care staff in the workplace about signs of pain, particularly where the resident is unable to communicate their pain verbally
- Consider three important aspects of resident mobility: mobility optimization; staff and resident safety; and person-centred approaches to care.
- Explore the use of a person-centred framework to integrate quality of care, risk management, and resident quality of life.
- Develop a collaborative and integrated approach to mobility care
- Learn about the outcomes of research to prevent and treat incontinence in Australian residential aged care facilities, including research funded under the National Continence Management Strategy (NCMS)
