The purpose of the literature review is to inform the Department of Veterans’ Affairs (DVA) about:
o Whether veterans experience different challenges and issues as they age from those of the general population.
o Factors and interventions that positively affect health and wellbeing outcomes for older people (particularly those from military backgrounds).
The Statement of Requirements describes two broad age groups of interest (aged 45 to 64 years and 65 to 90 years).
DVA will use the information gained from the review to inform policy and program development and DVA’s response to broader directions in aged care towards healthy and active ageing.
