Prevalence and nature of resident-to-resident abuse incidents in Australian residential aged care.
CONCLUSIONS: Resident-to-resident abuse was found to be lower than in other reports. Typically, it involves residents with cognitive impairment and does not result in serious harm. Managing behavioural symptoms associated with cognitive impairment is critical in preventing and managing RRA.

Oral health needs of older migrants with culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds in developed countries: A systematic review.
CONCLUSIONS: Cultural and linguistically diverse older migrants have high oral health needs and poor oral status and face a variety of barriers in accessing oral health care in their host countries. Recommendations to improve their access to oral health programs include building transcultural dental training into the educational requirements of dental students and developing oral health promotion programs that include culturally and linguistically customised information.

Understanding registered nurse decision-making, communication and care delivery between emergency departments and residential aged care facilities: A research protocol.
Abstract OBJECTIVES: Nursing staff in residential aged care facilities (RACF)s often make decisions about the transfer of residents to the emergency department (ED). This paper describes the protocol of a study that aims to understand decision-making process utilised by RACF registered nurses (RNs) and to explore the perceptions of RNs about the decision and communication process between RACF and ED. METHODS: The proposed mixed-method study will survey and interview RACF RNs to understand their decision to transfer a resident and collect information about older people referred to the ED. Data collection will ...

Abstract OBJECTIVE: To determine whether inpatients identified as being at high risk for falls received fall prevention interventions as recommended in the Best Practice Guidelines for Australian Hospitals. METHODS: This cross-sectional study examined medical record data from a convenience sample of inpatients admitted to orthopaedic and neurosciences wards (N = 100). Data were compared to the fall prevention recommendations. Percentages were used to describe compliance and independent samples t-tests to assess difference in adherence. RESULTS: Data revealed that 45% and 62% of recommendations ...

Voluntary stopping of eating and drinking in advance directives for adults with late-stage dementia.
CONCLUSION: Voluntary stopping of eating and drinking should be viewed in law as a form of "treatment" that competent adults can nominate in advance directives, thereby providing dementia patients with the opportunity to choose in advance, if they wish, to end their life legally, with dignity and comfort, and in a manner that does not implicate others in criminal behaviour such as assisted suicide, acceleration of death or euthanasia.

Abstract This research looked at the attitudes of Community Health Service (CHS) staff regarding the integration of a lawyer into their CHS both before and after the integration occurred. It assessed their confidence in identifying and addressing elder abuse at each point. A written survey was distributed to staff before the lawyer commenced (n = 126), and approximately 12 months afterwards (n = 54). The preliminary survey demonstrated widespread agreement that legal issues can affect older people and supported having a lawyer in a CHS. Respondents were not confident about their capacity t...
