interRAI in Australia
interRAI Australia makes a major contribution to interRAI's extensive research and development program. Within interRAI, the team at the University of Queensland is responsible for development of interRAI's hospital systems. interRAI advocates for the use of interRAI systems in Australia. We see immediate opportunities for use of systems in acute care, specialist geriatric services and home and residential care.
