Encouraging Best Practice in Residential Aged Care (EBPRAC) Program

The aim of the EBPRAC Program was to improve evidence-based clinical care for aged care residents, and to enable nationally consistent application of clinical practice in residential aged care.

Projects were required to demonstrate that they improved clinical care for residents, provided additional skills for clinical care staff and be transferable to other aged care homes.

The Department of Health and Ageing engaged a national evaluator, the Centre for Health Service Development at the University of Wollongong, to work with the successful consortia to develop performance indicators for monitoring the implementation of the projects and also to ensure systems were in place to collect appropriate data, which was used to evaluate the effectiveness of the program.
