Care of RACF residents

GPs are key providers of medical care to people living in residential aged care facilities (RACF), with the type of care differing significantly from that provided in the consultation room. It is well recognised that specific education and training is required to work effectively in the RACF setting, including knowledge and skill development in managing common clinical syndromes, multimorbidity and deprescribing, multidisciplinary care, palliative care and medicolegal issues. Managing patients in RACFs is likely to be both unfamiliar to, and challenging for, the majority of GP registrars.
