National Guide for Aged Care 2016 – Released

AG11-5-Chart-Image-72dipEmployees should take reasonable steps to ensure they are keeping themselves and others safe within the aged care sector. Pro-Visual Publishing, in collaboration with Leading Age Services Australia and Alzheimer’s Australia, has released their 2016 edition of the National Guide for Aged Care with Augmented Reality (AR) capabilities, allowing access to additional information and resources.

The 2016 edition of the Guide cover the following essential areas:

· Personal Protective Equipment and Infection Control

· Nutrition

· Patient Transfer and Handling of Patients

· The palliAGED app

· The Decision Assist Project

General Practitioners (GPs) and other clinicians have an essential role in planning and providing care for elderly. The palliAGED app was created in order to support and assist GPs and other clinicians in providing high quality palliative care to elderly Australians.

Additionally, the Decision Assist Project is an initiative that was also introduced to enhance palliative care. It aims to establish and strengthen links between aged care providers and specialist palliative care services at a local level. With the change in care delivery, it is expected that there will be an increase in positive outcomes for consumers and providers.

I would like to thank all of the sponsors of the National Guide for Aged Care 2016. Their support has made it possible for the guide to be distributed free of charge”, said John Hutchings, CEO, Pro-Visual Publishing.
