Aged and dementia care services are required to conform to multiple regulatory frameworks. How do these regulations enhance or constrain services?

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.
