Practice-driven Research

A Practical Approach to Aged Care Knowledge Development

by Tracey Mcdonald
Publication Date: 20/11/2011
RRP  $50.01 $46.25
In this ground-breaking book, Professor Tracey McDonald, RSL LifeCare Chair of Ageing at the Australian Catholic University, explores some of the many issues arising from an ageing population, ageing veterans and community health. Many of the projects presented in the book have been awarded Better Practice Awards by the Australian Government and provide inspiration to aged care service providers keen to improve their services. Professor McDonald has developed practice-driven research, an approach that fully involves clinical nurses and carers in striving to understand the work they are doing, and to improve on it. This approach has been developed in collaboration with the clinical nurses, therapists and managers at RSL LifeCare, and addresses the issues of relevance and appropriateness of research in solving practical, day-to-day problems within the Aged Care setting. It will appeal to all involved with the aged care industry, particularly managers and leaders at all levels, and also bridges the theory-practice gap by providing an overview of practice-driven research for health sciences students within the Australian University environment.
