Australian Ageing Agenda
Australian Ageing Agenda (AAA) is an independent and authoritative bi-monthly publication for people who work in or around the aged care and retirement sectors in Australia. It provides a broad range of news, education and opinion with an emphasis on knowledge sharing and research translation.
Updated daily, www.australianageingagenda.com.au is an interactive information hub for the sector, giving users access to breaking news, conference information, activities and events, and useful links. In the recent McNair Ingenuity Research Reader Survey, readers voted AAA online the second most preferred information source out of nine information sources in the aged care industry (AAA magazine being first).
A free bi-weekly e-newsletter is also sent to industry personnel, designed to keep them up-to-date with the latest develpments to their industry – subscribe.
AAA has embraced ‘social networking’, initially with twitter (AustAgeAgenda) late in 2010 and then in 2011 with a facebook page (Australian Ageing Agenda).
Community Care Review
Community Care Review is a new magazine focusing on the community care sector, produced by the team behind Australian Ageing Agenda.
The community aged care sector in Australia is undergoing significant change, with landmark reforms to both home care and home support.
These reforms include the implementation of the Commonwealth Home Support Program, the full rollout of consumer directed care in home care, new arrangements around quality review, and potentially massive changes for respite provision.
The remit of Community Care Review broadly includes home care, home support, respite, reablement and home modification. It also examines the links between ageing and disability, not to mention other domains such as mental health.
Community Care Review is underpinned by informed analysis and comment, as well as evidence-based advice.
Regular editorial sections include Management, Frontline Issues, Clinical Report, Education & Training, Resources, Legal, Finance.
Community Care Review provides a new space to examine the important issues impacting community care, to facilitate discussion, highlight innovation, and share knowledge.
