In Sunset's Glow: Life, Death and the Older Person October 27th CPC Masterclass

In Sunset's Glow: Life, Death and the Older Person October 27th CPC Masterclass

This talk by Dr Lisa Mitchell will dwell firstly in that intersection, addressing questions about where, why and how older people die and the role that recognition of dying and Advance Care Planning have to play. We will examine the findings of the Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety and how ageism impacts on provision of care (including palliative care) for older people. 

Ending on a lighter note, we will look at some of the interesting work that is emerging in Geroscience and how we can reimagine ageing in ourselves and others.

Exploring the impact of rurality on ageing and caregiving. Tuesday 7th September 12-1pm

Exploring the impact of rurality on ageing and caregiving. Tuesday 7th September 12-1pm

Abstract: Around one third of older Australians are ageing in rural and regional areas. The rural context presents a range of unique considerations that impact the experience of ageing and caregiving. These factors are often overlooked in contemporary health and aged care responses, which tend to be developed within metro-centric frameworks. This presentation will explore the idea of rurality as a determinant of health in later life, by discussing the opportunities and systemic challenges that impact ageing and caregiving in rural and regional Australia.
