Ongoing research brings Positive Ageing to life

BLP Associates Emily Gilfillan and Paul Longridge are the newest members to the National Ageing Research Institute (NARI) Advisory Group.

NARI is a national leader in ageing research, bringing research to life to improve health outcomes and aged care practice as well as to guide policy to invest in solutions for positive ageing for Australia’s older people. The NARI Advisory Group was formed to review and update the evidence based resource, “Improving the environment for older people in Health Services”.

Emily is BLP’s Aged Care and Seniors Living Sector Leader. Paul is a Clinical Health Planner with a special interest in ensuring new facilities/refurbishments are appropriate for the aged and, more specifically, people with dementia. Their engagement on the NARI Advisory Group will see their wealth of expertise contribute greatly to real lives, particularly in falls and balance, pain, dementia, physical activity, healthy ageing, psychosocial and mental health, and health systems evaluation to improve outcomes for older people and those who care for them in the hospital environment.
