Medication and Restraint in Aged Care
As a service provider in Aged Care, do you understand the issues, and your responsibilities, around minimising the use of physical and/or chemical restraint?
Medication Management is a frequent source of complaint to the Aged Care Quality and Safety Commission. The use of restraint in the residential aged care setting is currently a focus of the Royal Commission into Aged Care and also in the media and public eye.
Join Dr Melanie Wroth, Chief Clinical Advisor at the Aged Care Quality and Safety Commission, as she demonstrates how the Commission and the Department of Health are firmly focussing on these issues, and describes what measures they are taking to minimise the inappropriate use of medication and restraint.
