CDC Rollout Study to Examine Experience of Those with Dementia

New research is investigating the experience of people with dementia under a consumer directed aged care model.

A large scale study to be conducted by Griffith University PhD candidate Tracee Cash will explore the barriers and facilitators to taking up a CDC approach as part of the home care packages program.

Speaking to Community Care Review Ms Cash said, “It’s hoped that this research will provide important insight which will inform government and service providers as they negotiate and adapt policies and procedures to the CDC model of care.”

Professor Wendy Moyle from the Menzies Health Institute Queensland said there has been limited research to date specifically focusing on this cohort under the rollout of CDC.
