CHP PhD Completion seminar: 22nd June 2017 – Modelling Residential Aged Care in Australia: Entry and Exit

12:30pm-1.30pm, Thurs 22nd June 2017
Room 410, Level 4, 207 Bouverie Street, Carlton

Dr. Marijan Jukic, PhD Candidate, Centre for Health Policy

This thesis examines the residential aged care trajectory of older Australians utilising numerous data sources, including: unit record survey data (SDAC), aged care funding instrument (ACFI) and aged care assessment program (ACAP) administrative data.

The core research steps include: (1) modelling the probability of entry to and exit from residential care; (2) modelling applications and approvals; (3) derivation of transition and mortality assumptions for care; (4) approximation of mortality rates, and (5) demonstrating the usefulness of these data for future projections. Implications for residential aged care policies in Australia and the future of aged care are discussed.
