As you may have known our fantastic trainer Rhett has been finishing off his Public Health Degree at the University Of Wollongong. the focus of the Degree has been in preventative health and health promotion, which has seen Rhett conduct research into some very interesting areas of Dementia medication management. Below is an abstract from Rhett’s final paper into Dementia Medication Management.
E-health is an emerging form of delivering sound medical information via the Internet. The need for more professional advice in the area of Dementia management, has seen the creation of the (www.dementiameds.com) website. This website aids in providing professional health management advice for informal carers of Dementia patients and Dementia patients themselves. The website’s primary focus is on managing medication by providing information and resources applicable to sufferers. The evaluation of the website saw participants undergo usability testing to find potential issues within the overall functionality and usability.
The research into this area of health management was overseen by Dr Judy Mullen and Dr Pippa Burns from the University Of Wollongong.
