Improving health communications with older Australians

In Central Queensland, News, Sunshine Coast, Wide Bay by Jasmin Midgley

Queensland Health recently released a summary of findings into its research on improving communications with older Australians.

The primary objective of this research was to establish a greater understanding of the ways in which Queensland Health can provide Older Queenslanders, and those that influence their decision making (e.g. families and carers), with information to support a positive ageing experience.

This research defined Older Queenslanders as those aged 65 years or more and, as a point of reference, Queenslanders aged 45-64 years were also included in the research.

The findings have been published in an easy-to-read 8 page document, which can be found here.
