Projects

Reducing the use of sedative medication in aged care facilities (Implementation of the 'RedUSe' project into everyday practice) (2013 - 2016)$3,000,000
Description
Antipsychotic and benzodiazepine medications are often used in residential aged care, despite limited benefit and significant harm, including increased risk of falls, stroke and death. The RedUSe program, through a multi-strategic, interdisciplinary approach, has been shown within a controlled study to successfully promote the quality use of sedative medications in residential aged care. The strategies employed include audit, benchmarking and feedback, a customised education program for nursing staff and interdisciplinary review. This project will widely implement RedUSe. A decline in psychoactive drug use will produce multiple benefits for older people, including increased mobility, alertness, and decreased fall and mortality rates.
