New Zealand Health and Ageing Research Group
The New Zealand Health and Ageing Research Group was formed in 2014 as a cooperative network of researchers and health professionals. The group was initiated from interest in the International Residential Assessment Instrument (interRAI) and unlocking the wealth of information that the assessment data can provide. InterRAI is a clinical assessment tool used in over 30 countries to assess and aid care for older people (aged 65 or over) in residential facilities. New Zealand is a leader in interRAI and is the first country to mandate the standardised health assessment of all older people requiring health services.
interRAI is an international collaborative to improve the quality of life of vulnerable persons through a seamless comprehensive assessment system. Please contact Dr Hamish Jamieson for more information.
