Care of the Ageing
The MACH is committed to improving personalised care for our increasingly ageing society
Across MACH partners there is an active network consisting of global experts with specialisms in the ageing and aged care field across medical disciplines, spanning the full care continuum.
This network—overseen locally by the Care of the Ageing subcommittee and linking nationally through the Australian Health Research Alliance (AHRA)—aims to address the ageing and aged care challenges faced by end-users, including patients, carers, health care providers and the general population through innovative, evidence-based research that will have both a significant local and global impact.
