FREE Training opportunity:

The Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety Final Report highlighted dementia care and use of restrictive practices as areas for immediate attention.

Residential aged care providers are encouraged to take part in a free dementia education program currently being delivered by NPS MedicineWise. The program is focused on person-centred care approaches and the role of psychotropic medicines in managing changed behaviours in people with dementia.

The program has been developed in partnership with the aged care sector. The program supports:
