06 October 2016

By Simon Biggs and Ashley Carr, 2016

Aged and dementia care services are required to conform to multiple regulatory frameworks. Mapping these reveals regulatory clusters.


In partnership with NHMRC, HammondCare, the Brightwater Care Group, Helping Hand Aged Care (SA) and Alzheimer’s Australia, researchers from the University of Melbourne and the Brotherhood investigated how regulation affects practices in dementia care.

The second Research Insights considers the regulatory clusters that appear when the different levels of regulation in Australia are mapped.
