AAG presents a webinar:
Safe and inclusive care for Forgotten Australians and other trauma survivors

Monday 20th June 2022

Forgotten Australians who have come from a background of complex trauma, have significant barriers to accessing appropriate care. Co-design projects, when effectively facilitated, can improve social care and access to services for marginalised groups. With an ageing population, appropriate aged care services to support ageing Care Leavers, trauma survivors and people with mental health concerns are crucial.

This webinar will introduce participants to the barriers to care for this cohort and demonstrate how to achieve safe and inclusive aged care for Forgotten Australians and other survivors of trauma.

AAG WA presents: The potential of health smart homes to support ageing in place & Caregivers experiences’ of transitioning people with dementia to residential care

Tuesday 29th March 2022

Many older people prefer to age in place to maintain social connectivity with their neighbourhood, and proximity to friends and family. Ageing in place maximises the independence of older adults, enhancing their wellbeing and quality of life, while decreasing the financial burden of residential care costs. To address challenges implementing ageing in place, the health-assistive smart home with the ability to monitor and detect potential changes in health has emerged.

The decision to transfer an older person living with dementia to long-term care is challenging for family caregivers. The experiences of family caregivers leading up to the transfer have been previously explored; however, no study has explicitly focused on family experiences related to making the final decision to transfer.

2021 Glenda Powell Travelling Fellow - Virtual Event - AAG WA Division - Information disorder:
health and the information revolution

Tuesday 23rd November 2021

The increased spread of misinformation through social media and traditional news outlets has played a role in generating insecurity, confusion, and distrust of public and government authorities. This has especially been the case with respect to the shaping of public perceptions of risk and health management during the COVID-19 pandemic. Strategies designed to fight disinformation campaigns and the spread of misinformation have largely been defensive, including efforts to regulate social media platforms; to expose dis, mis and mal-information in the hope of lessening the impact; and, to increase audiences’ ‘health literacy’.

Focal issues in this discussion include: How does COVID-19 related mis-information influence individuals’ knowledge about the disease and their intention to follow recommended health measures? How do people interact with their close community and virtual (social media) connections to understand public health information and how do collective viewpoints become established and prevalent? In what ways does this community of information translate into decisions that may undermine effective public health responses to the COVID-19 emergency? Do public health responses (including advice about vaccine safety and community lockdowns) undermine trust in the public health system and do these (dynamic) responses feedback and inflate individual (existential and ontological) and community concerns?

AAG WA presents: Family and staff perceptions of using CCTV in residential aged care facilities and Sleep and older adults

Tuesday 19th October 2021

Older people generally access residential aged care facilities (RACF) when the level of care required exceeds that being offered in the home. Elder abuse within residential aged care (RAC), although rare, is generally highlighted in the media so attracts a high level of interest nationally and internationally. One way of monitoring the standard of care within RAC is through the use of close circuit television (CCTV). Monitoring by CCTV of older people in RACF’s can be seen by some as positive and by others as intrusive and unethical. A pilot in 2019 surveyed the resident, the family and the health care worker on their views of video surveillance within one RACF. The results presented today are from a wider survey in 2020/21 targeting healthcare staff and family throughout Western Australia.

The second presentation will explore sleep and older adults and the impact of caregiving on sleep. Sleep is not just a passive process, rather, it is an active process with integral roles in maintaining physical and psychological wellbeing

AAG Vic presents: Technology to Support Social and Emotional Wellbeing in Later Life

Tuesday 5th October 2021

Understanding how technologies might provide social and emotional enrichment in later life is especially important today, with in-person interactions limited due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Many older adults and aged care providers are embracing the opportunities that technologies such as virtual reality, online gaming, social networking, and artificial intelligence (among others) can provide. But there are concerns that technology-based social activities are a poor substitute for in-person interactions, and that there are challenges to overcome before new technologies can be used effectively to support social and emotional wellbeing in later life.

AAG SECG & NZAG present: Time to take action: dealing with imposter syndrome

Tuesday 7th September 2021

If you’re an early career researcher, chances are you’ve likely felt or at least heard of “imposter syndrome”: The feeling of doubt in your competency, knowledge and ability to contribute. Do I belong here? Am I a fraud? What if I get found out?

AAG & ANZSGM present: Webinar: Frailty - mechanisms, measurement and management

Tuesday 24th August 2021

Some people remain physically active and socially engaged as they grow older; others experience chronic co-morbidities and decline in functional and cognitive abilities. Since these differences are not accurately captured by chronological age alone, gerontologists are increasingly using biological age or frailty to describe patients’ health status. Frail older people are vulnerable to poor outcomes (including falls, institutionalisation and death). This webinar will present a state-of-the-art update on the mechanisms, measurement and management of frailty, with an emphasis on clinical relevance.

The role of sleep in cognitive impairment and caregiving

Wednesday 28th October 2020

Sleep is a key pillar of health. With ageing, the prevalence of sleep disorders increase, having implications for waking function and quality of life. Sleep disruptions, such as with obstructive sleep apnoea, have been associated with increased likelihood of poor health including cognitive impairment. Furthermore, with dementia, sleep disturbances are typically more diverse and extreme, having secondary impacts on the sleep and wellbeing of family carers.

Integrated & Culturally Sensitive Service for Older Aboriginal People. Practical Solution or Pipe Dream?
ATSIAAG 2019 Pre-Conference Workshop Report Launch

Wednesday 23rd September 2020

While a broad range of specialised Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander focused services would be ideal, this is not always possible. This workshop report engages the questions:

  • What are the necessary components of a good service delivery model for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people?
  • What are the barriers and enablers to delivering integrated care for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people?
  • What does a vision for integrated care in the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander ageing space look like and how will we get there?

By looking across a range of service areas including aged care, disability, health, housing, there may be opportunity to meet this need more creatively however this would require greater flexibility around funding for different service models by various governments.

AAG WA Division presents: How to prepare for COVID-19 in aged care – is WA ready?

Monday 21st September 2020

In January 2020, the World Health Organization declared COVID-19 a public health emergency of international concern. Since that time, it has spread around the globe, affecting different jurisdictions to varying degrees. In Australia, we have experienced a second wave of infections in Victoria, leading to a second lockdown and a huge spike in infections and many deaths, predominantly in aged care. In contrast, Western Australia’s hard border restrictions and hotel quarantine have staved off community transmission for many months. A lack of vigilance and preparation could spell disaster for WA, so what can and should we be considering and doing to make sure we are COVID ready?

Stolen Generation Survivors, who are they, inter-generational impacts and support services

Wednesday 27th May 2020

Celebrate National reconciliation Week by joining us for a webinar exploring Australia’s Stolen Generation – those Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children who were forcibly removed from their families as a result of past government policies.
In 2014-15 there were an estimated 13,800 surviving Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people aged 50 years and over who had been removed from their families and communities as a result of past government policies.
By 2023 this group of people referred to as Stolen Generation Survivors will have grown to approximately 20,900 with all being eligible to receive aged care services.
We need to be aware of this group and the complex needs of this group who suffered profound childhood trauma when they were forcibly removed from their homes, isolated from family and culture and often institutionalised, abused and assaulted.
The aged care sector is not well prepared to meet the unique needs of the Stolen Generation Survivors. It is therefore essential that we seek to better understand who this group is, where they are, what their journey has been like including impact on other family members and what types of services are out there that might be able to help Stolen Generation Survivors, their family members and aged care providers.

Webinar - Caring for Older People in Surgery

Wednesday 12th December 2018
As the population ages and surgical techniques improve, increasing numbers of older people are undergoing surgery. Up until recently care has largely focused on older people with a hip fracture. There is excellent evidence for orthogeriatric care.
However, emerging research suggests there is a role for geriatrician-led and multidisciplinary care in non-orthopaedic surgical populations. Dr Christina Norris and Dr Janani Thillainadesan are geriatricians and early career researchers, building their expertise in this field of geriatric medicine.
In this webinar they will share their experience and research findings.

Delivering better care for older Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander & Maori peoples: An introduction to cultural safety

Wednesday 30th May 2018

The concept of cultural safety has its roots in the provision of health care and nursing education in Aotearoa (New Zealand), and has been taken up in Australia as a means of promoting social justice and better outcomes for those experiencing inequality. Cultural safety represents a shift from providing care regardless of difference, to care that takes account of people’s unique needs. Cultural safety has been described as the final step on a continuum in which systemic change takes place in an organisation or service, and individual care providers develop an awareness of their own identity and how this impacts on the provision of care.

Innovative health service provision in residential aged care settings

Tuesday 8th May 2018

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.

Sexual abuse of older women: The role of aged care service providers in preventing this form of Elder Abuse


Tuesday, 27 March 2018

The World Health Organisation identifies sexual abuse as a form of Elder Abuse – and there are growing questions about how the sexual abuse of older women can be prevented.

Research in Australia shows that aged care service providers have an important role to play in preventing the sexual abuse of older women, particularly abuse by intimate partners and other family members. It also shows that service providers can transform the experiences of women experiencing sexual abuse.

This webinar draws on the evidence to frame a case study exploring the role of aged care service providers in preventing sexual abuse – and provides practical strategies for service providers who work with older women.

There is a wealth of data ‘out there’ and it is a valuable resource. There are several benefits to learning about the data that is widely available, including:

  • Allows independent validation of results
  • Avoids replication
  • Leads to new collaborations and partnerships

Are you aware of all the datasets that are ‘out there’? Do you know how to access them? Do you know whether there’s a cost? Join us for a webinar that will introduce several relevant datasets, and help you understand how to access and get the most out of them. This webinar is brought to you by the AAG’s Housing and Built Environment Special Interest Group

Participants will:

  • Identify data sources that will be useful to their research
  • Learn how to access the data sources
  • Identify any barriers to accessing the information, such as license requirement/ permissions or fees

Role of physical activity in prostate cancer survivorship

Tuesday, 05 September 2017

Prostate cancer is the most common cancer for males in many countries including Australia and New Zealand, with older men more at risk of developing this cancer than their younger counterparts. While improvements in detection and treatment have resulted in very high five year survival rates for prostate cancer, many of these treatments still have substantial negative effects on older men’s health, including increased risk of chronic disease, reduced physical function and mental health. Substantial evidence now indicates that exercise can reduce many of these treatment related side-effects, however too many men with prostate cancer are still in sufficiently physically active.

Polypharmacy

Wednesday, 9th November 2016

Older adults can have multiple comorbidities which may require medications for management however they can be more susceptible to their adverse effects resulting in negative effects such as falls, hospitalisations, cognitive impacts and functional impairments. The ‘prescribing cascade’ can result from side effects of medications with some patients ending up on truckloads of medications!

Geriatricians need to be cognisant of polypharmacy, medication rationalisation and desprescribing. Our leading experts will discuss the evidence around polypharmacy, its impact as well as evidence and practical tips for deprescribing.

“You can’t have home care if you don’t have a home” - a look at the intersection between housing and aged care in later life

Wednesday 13th July 2016

This Webinar will look at the intersection between housing and aged care, with the premise that housing is essential infrastructure for providing care to people in the community. Current aged care policy has an emphasis on “staying at home” with support services designed to help people stay in the community for longer. This policy is in keeping with the preferences of most older people who do not want to move from their homes and familiar neighbourhoods. However there is also an expectation that older people will change their housing as they adapt to changing needs, that they will “downsize” to an apartment or smaller dwelling, and that moving will enable better access to aged care and support. By moving, older people are also expected to be able to realise the capital in their home, and free up housing stock for younger people in the context of diminishing housing affordability and an increasing risk of homelessness.

This symposium explores the tensions between staying put or moving, the intersection between housing and aged care, and the implications for future generations.

Presenters:

  • Professor Julie Byles Director, Research Centre for Generational Health and Ageing; and Head International Longevity Centre- Australia.

Managing incontinence, specifically nocturia and the aged

Friday, 24th June 2016

For family members or friends, caring for a person with incontinence is one of the most difficult aspects of being a carer. Over 4.8 million Australians experience bladder or bowel control problems, many of whom live in the community. Around 60% of individuals older than 60 years wake to pass urine at least twice per night. Statistics indicate that around 77% of nursing home residents in Australia are affected by incontinence with more than half of these people wetting the bed each night (Steel & Fonda 1995).

Presenters:

  • Dr Michael Whishaw Consultant Physician in Aged Care Medicine at Royal Melbourne Hospital

Managing Risk And Assertiveness In Your Research Writing

Tuesday, 03 May 2016
All research writing involves taking a stand: offering a claim or an interpretation; sometimes making recommendations; evaluating policy, practice or previous research. This is a challenge for all academic writers, who need to make a delicate balance between confidence and caution, assertiveness and respect, certainty or the possibility of different perspectives.

This webinar looks at some of the nuts and bolts of language which you can choose to adjust, to help you to achieve this balance when drafting or editing your own work. You do not need to know any grammar to take part, but it will be very useful to bring along a piece of your own writing (whether finished or in draft) which includes some claims or interpretations (for example the Discussion and Conclusion of a research article). There will be lots of opportunities for participants to share observations, tips and experiences.
