AMREP Lecture Theatre The Alfred Medical Research and Education Precinct (AMREP) 75 Commercial Road, Melbourne VIC 3004 Located 100m west of the Punt and Commercial Roads intersection.

Presented by Monash University, Victorian Institute of Forensic Medicine

Description: Unexplained absences of residential aged care residents, often referred to as absconding, eloping and wandering, or leave without notification is one of the most challenging issues related to the care of older people. The issue of "to lock or not" poses challenges for the care provider when trying to balance safety with independence. Understanding how to manage leave without notification of residential aged care residents will become more acute as the population ages. Which is worse, the psychological impact of being locked in versus the physical risk of leaving?

Date: Friday 24 November 2017

Time: 8:30 am – 5:00 pm. Registrations open at 8:00 am
