The Memorandum of Understanding agreement involves a newly created Clinical Chair based in Bathurst in New South Wales, which will conduct field research at Catholic Healthcare’s regional aged care services in central west New South Wales.

Catholic Healthcare’s Acting General Manager Residential Care, Matthew Filocamo says the Chair would help improve care models for seniors, advance research, boost staff education, and enhance clinical practice.

“We look forward to working in partnership with Charles Sturt University to bring about real change in health and lifestyle outcomes for our residents,” Mr Filocamo says.

Charles Sturt University Professor Catherine Hungerford says the collaborative partnership will have significant benefits for both organisations and in time the broader aged care sector.

Applications are now open for the Chair role.
