Senior Research Fellow

Kirsten Moore is a social gerontologist and senior research fellow in the Melbourne Ageing Research Collaboration at NARI. She returned to NARI in 2020 after six years working at the Marie Curie Palliative Care Research Department at UCL in London where she focused on dementia and palliative care. In the UK she completed an Alzheimer’s Society senior fellowship on grief and preparation for end of life in family carers of people with dementia. She previously examined the Extended Aged Care at Home Dementia packages for her PhD and has also undertaken health and aged care evaluations, falls prevention research and implementation studies.

Kirsten has been involved in developing resources for implementing evidence including an animation about carer grief, a decision aid for family carers during COVID-19 and environmental audit tools to enable more suitable hospital and residential aged care environments for older people and people living with dementia.
