Returning for its 2nd year, this now two day event is about providing a platform for discussion on the big changes happening across the sector, particularly in light of the Aged Care Royal Commission, and the implementation of new quality and safety standards.
It will explore what can and has been learnt from the Royal Commission to date and what must be done to improve care for older people in Australia – particularly in residential aged care. We believe it will be an important opportunity for a debrief after the initial findings come out, to take stock of how the industry is tracking with new standards implementation and to spend time discussing areas for improvement, challenges and next steps for reform.
The audience is made up of a diverse mix of representatives from state and federal government, local health districts, primary health networks, aged care facilities, aged care providers, council organizations nationwide, independent carers and many more in this new knowledge sharing environment.
Key topics to include:
- COVID-19: Future Planning and Prevention for Infectious Diseases Control from Entering into Your RACF
- Implementing Change Based on Recommendations from the Royal Commission into Aged Care
- The Case of Codifying Elder Abuse – Putting Humanity at the Heart of Ageing Reform
