Research: Attitudes of Health Professionals to Older Persons


Dr Eleanor Mitchell
and Mr Sai Ram Ramisetty from Monash University are conducting research into the Attitudes of Health Professionals to older person health assessments (Ethics Approval 20704).

What does the research involve?

A health assessment of an older person is a detailed assessment of a person aged 75 years or an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander person aged 55 years and older. Very limited research has been undertaken on older person health assessments since they were introduced in 1999. A student at Monash University is interested in discovering the attitudes of health professionals to older person health assessments. This research requires the completion of an online survey. 

You are invited to participate if you are a General Practitioner or Practice Nurse who has or could potentially conduct Medicare-funded older person health assessments. The online survey should take 5 minutes to complete and participation is voluntary. To find out more or to complete the survey, click here.
