Policy and Practice Update - October 2021

Members have recently been sent the monthly AAG Policy & Practice Update for September 2021.

This month's update encouraged members to get involved in a survey on the community service sector, the assurance review of home care packages and to engage with researchers to set new priorities for research into aged care.

This update continues to highlight:

~ Ways to get involved in the policy and practice;

~ Continuing opportunities that members can get involved in;

~ And relevant grants, awards, and funding opportunities

Alongside the policy and practice update, new and existing grey literature on older adults and ageing can be found in the AAG Grey Literature Library.
