The GRACE Study

Generating evidence on Resistant bacteria in the Aged Care Environment (GRACE)
The GRACE Study
Project Status: In progress
Project administered by: Flinders University

The GRACE study aims to investigate the carriage and transfer of resistant bacteria or 'superbugs' in residential aged care.

Working in partnership with aged care providers the GRACE study will, for the first time, map the existence and spread of resistant bacteria in aged care.

Funded by the National Health & Medical Research Council’s Medical Research Future Fund, this study will produce new evidence to help us to improve facility management, including cleaning and hygiene practices, to prevent the spread of harmful bacteria, and ultimately improve the health of aged care residents and the wider community. The GRACE study has been approved by the Southern Adelaide Clinical Human Research Ethics Committee.
