Organisational levels, strategies and design in the regulation of dementia care22 May 2017
Aged and dementia care services are required to conform to multiple regulatory frameworks. How do these regulations enhance or constrain services? Researchers from the University of Melbourne and the Brotherhood of St Laurence have investigated how regulation affects practices in dementia care.
This third Research Insight focuses on the methods that caring organisations have developed for coping with the demands of regulation.
This research is an activity of the Cognitive Decline Partnership Centre (CDPC), a national initiative funded jointly by the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC), Alzheimer’s Australia, which supports the Consumer Dementia Research Network (CDRN), and three aged care industry partners—Brightwater Care Group, HammondCare and Helping Hand Aged Care.
