Aveo Taringa and the QUT Health Clinics recently announced a new partnership to serve the retirement village residents and the students at the QUT Health Clinics, whilst fostering health care promotion in the community.
Aveo Taringa residents are assisting the next generation of health care professionals whilst receiving quality patient care from students from health disciplines such as chronic disease support, exercise and movement, optometry, podiatry, psychology and counseling, and the wound healing service.
Students and supervising academic staff visit Aveo Taringa and provide services from these disciplines for free. Residents also have the opportunity to travel to the clinic at no out-of-pocket expense.
The partnership kicked off in late November, as residents of Aveo Taringa attended talks by Kerry Porter and Beth Mackay on diabetes, and grief and loss.
These sessions were incredibly successful and provided residents with valuable and relevant information about chronic disease including diabetes and how to handle grief and loss.
