Public lecture: “What constitutes good quality of care in aged care?” – Professor Julie Ratcliffe

Caring Futures Institute lead for Health and Social Economics, Professor Julie Ratcliffe, and a team of researchers from three universities, five aged care partner organisations and aged care consumers across Australia’s aged care sector are working with older people receiving aged care services to find out what is important for them to have a good quality of life. This Flinders-led work will lead to the development of a new quality of life measure that aged care providers can use for quality assessments with their clients. 

In this lecture, Professor Ratcliffe discusses how the new instrument will have wide applicability in quality assessment and economic evaluation for aged care system decision making, ultimately improving the quality of life from a consumer perspective where it should be – at the front and centre of our aged care system.
