Competition in aged care and older Australians' health outcomes
This research project aims to examine the role of competition in aged care on women's health outcomes in Australia. This project will focus on women in general as well as on cognitively vulnerable populations in a sub-analysis. The main emphasis is on home care/home support users. Competition will be measured using a well-established index applied to aged care data from the AIHW and will be related to women's health outcomes. Findings from this project will provide insights and quantitative evidence to support the design of aged care policies that meet the populations' needs.
