MQ Health - Macquarie University

Health services and safety research in neurological conditions and care

MQ Health’s Australian Institute of Health Innovation is pursuing research on service provision and patient safety in areas that relate to neurosciences and the associated clinical areas. Some of this research seeks to understand how to reduce dementia-related complications during hospitalisation of older patients. Other projects are exploring how to ensure the safe and appropriate use of pharmaceuticals for dementia patients within residential aged care facilities, or what types of ‘decision support’ tools would be most useful to motor neuron disease patients, their families and their clinicians.
