As governments push for longer working lives, workplaces will be need to accommodate long-term health conditions.
UNSW expert Dr Beena Ahmed says the way we collect and analyse medical and health information in the future could improve life expectancy.
Older workers have enormous value, but it remains to be seen what their health and disability profiles will be and which employers will reap the benefits of population ageing, writes Rafal Chomik.
UNSW Medicine is helping to lead a campaign calling on Australian governments to close the life expectancy gap between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians within a generation.
Indigenous peoples' health is 100 years behind that of other Australians, according to work carried out by UNSW researchers.
