interRAI builds focus on equity
Equity is the theme of interRAI Services’ Annual Report 2020-21.
interRAI is the primary assessment tool for vulnerable people receiving support to live at home or in aged residential care in New Zealand. TAS implements interRAI in New Zealand, managing data collation and training hundreds of assessors yearly.
“Equity is fundamental to the future of the health system and interRAI’s equity focus reflects that,” says Director interRAI Services, Marg Milne. interRAI’s extensive dataset helps researchers and policy teams understand equity considerations for older and vulnerable people.
The Annual Report reflects another huge year for interRAI with staff responding to ongoing pandemic challenges as well as progressing ambitious projects to improve their service offering.
Case studies showcase two innovative avenues for research using interRAI data – frailty and caregiver burnout.
