At #AMANatCon today discussing Aged Care – again KINDNESS and properly resourced GPs at the centre of care.
Areas to improve during the Royal Commission (which will likely confirm what we already know from the last several Inquiries)
We need to incentivise especially :
- GP visits especially after hours – fix the MBS dont break it with a nonsense from the MBS review
- Prevention eg Exercise to reduce dementia (up to 1/3 preventable)
- Respite care
- Technology to avoid hospital transfer – teleconsult
- Reduction in Chemical restraint with associated ethical, consent and legal problems
