Promoting Healthy Ageing in General Practice

Smiling older man with healthcare worker outside

Join Adelaide PHN and renowned Geriatrician Professor Sue Kurrle (as seen in the intergenerational ABC TV series “Old people’s home for four year olds” and “Old people’s home for teenagers”) to explore best practice approaches to healthy ageing, the importance of early intervention and its impact on the trajectory of ageing. This education event will also present the learnings from a dedicated healthy ageing quality improvement project undertaken by ten general practices in the Adelaide PHN region. A twelve-week intensive sprint approach was applied across three focus areas, supporting practices to utilise practical tools to improve the management of chronic conditions, and the early identification of dementia and frailty.

Attendance at this event will assist general practice teams to independently undertake quality improvement activities utilising toolkits for Chronic Conditions, Dementia and Frailty which will be launched at the event. These toolkits include step-by-step guides for reviewing data, planning improvement activities, applying best practice screening and clinical assessment tools for Dementia and Frailty, and embedding interventions such as case conferencing in everyday practice.

This event will provide insights into improving our own healthy ageing trajectory and will assist GPs and nurses to recognise it’s never too late to make a difference in the quality of life of their patients. Attendance at this event will assist general practice clinicians with meeting their self-recorded CPD requirements.
