The Future of Aged Care - Beyond the Interim Report of the Royal Commission

Tuesday, 19 November 2019 - Thursday, 21 November 2019

The Royal Commission is a unique challenge and opportunity for the aged care industry to reflect on and identify areas for improvement, while also strategising for the future. While the government continues with ongoing reform, it is essential that providers are actively engaged in this watershed moment for aged care in Australia.

Indeed, while the Royal Commission may eventually make recommendations to government, there is also an immense responsibility for providers themselves to drive positive change, and already there are key areas wherein the most proactive, leading providers are innovating to improve and ensure quality.

Strengthening the Aged Care Workforce

Tuesday, 3 December 2019 - Thursday, 5 December 2019

The skills, compassion and resilience of the aged care workforce has always been a critical factor in ensuring that elderly Australians receive the high quality, customer driven care that they deserve.

Now facing accreditation against the new standards, a Royal Commission and increased scrutiny from the media, it is of crucial importance that providers ensure that they are attracting quality staff to the workforce.

To do this, providers must tackle the negative perceptions of the aged care sector, develop potential for career progression in aged care roles, build a culture of engagement and better retain staff.
