Older People Clinical Network

The Older People Clinical Network brings together clinicians, consumers, care providers, health service managers, non-government organisations and researchers to plan and implement best practice in providing for the health and welfare of older people across South Australia.

The network aims to:

  • increase clinicians’ involvement in planning health services

  • focus on integrating services
  • establish workgroups to focus on agreed priority areas.
