COMMUNICATING WITH OLDER PEOPLE ACROSS TRANSITION POINTS OF CARE
Grant number: DP170100308 | Funding period: 2017 - 2019
This project aims to examine how health professionals, older people and their family members communicate in managing medications as older people move through transition points of care. Communication problems often occur as older people move between and within settings, often leading to harmful medication incidents. The project expects to facilitate medication safety as older people move across different settings and to facilitate cultural shifts in health care communication and opportunities for consumer involvement.
