Residential Aged Care Communiqué

The Residential Aged Care Communiqué (RAC Communiqué) is an electronic publication containing narrative case reports about lessons learned from the Coroners’ investigations into preventable deaths in Residential Aged Care facilities.

Each edition of the RAC Communiqué:

  • focuses on a single theme relevant to the clinicians and care staff in aged care (eg, physical restraint, falls),
  • provides up to three investigated and closed case summaries to engage the reader,
  • commentaries from a recognised expert to provide the relevant information about optimal clinical practice, and
  • electronic references to key national and international resources.

It is written, edited, published and distributed by Department of Forensic Medicine, Monash University and the Victorian Institute of Forensic Medicine.
