Towards an action plan for aged care for Rural and Remote Australia
Report from Australian Association of Gerontology Regional, Rural and Remote Special Interest Group workshop
Held in Perth, Western Australia, 7 November 2017
This report summarises the proceedings and outcomes of a workshop hosted by the Australian Association of Gerontology (AAG) Regional, Rural and Remote Special Interest Group, held in Perth on 7 November 2017. The workshop aimed to address the apparent inequities of access and outcomes in the aged care system for older people in rural and remote areas, and suggest directions for the future. In particular, the intent was for the workshop to generate momentum for the development of an Action Plan for aged care provision in rural and remote areas, and to identify priorities for such a plan.
