Overview

Residential aged care services face particular difficulties in palliative care, because permanent residents often have dementia and/or communication difficulties and complex care needs (AIHW 2018). In addition, there is a high burden of chronic disease and comorbidity in the residential aged care population (Hillen, Vitry & Caughey 2017).

Learning areas
