Dementia flowchart

The Office of the Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety has, in early May, published reports on dementia, use of restraint, and the pressures on the aged care system.

The reports follow Background Paper 1 - Navigating the maze: an overview of Australia's current aged care system, released in February. The new ones are:

  • Background Paper 2 - Medium- and long-term pressures on the system: the changing demographics and dynamics of aged care
  • Background Paper 3 - Dementia in Australia: nature, prevalence and care
  • Background Paper 4 - Restrictive practices in residential aged care in Australia

Each reports summarises a great deal of research into 30 or so pages.

All the reports are available on the Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety website on the publications page here.
