overview

The Aged Care Reform Conference will take place on Thursday 14th November at the Rendezvous Hotel, Melbourne.

This new one 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.

Topics to be addressed include:

  • Initial Findings & Responses to the Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality & Safety
  • Compliance with Aged Care Quality and Safety Commission’s Quality Standards
  • Workforce – Staff to Resident Ratios – Is This the Answer?
  • Restrictive Practices and Restraint
  • Changing Cultures of Secrecy, Driving Transparency & Whistleblower Protections
  • Dementia – Improving Access to Education & Training to Improve Quality & Safety
  • Medical care of older persons in residential aged care facilities
  • Palliative Care and Advanced Care Planning
  • Voluntary Assisted Dying – Updates from Victoria and Learnings to Date
  • Disabled Young People in Aged Care Facilities
  • Indigenous People in Aged Care Facilities
  • Setting the Context: What is the Relevant Legislation to the Royal Commission into Aged Care & How Does it Impact Aged Care?
  • Record keeping and data reporting – making changes
  • Mandatory Reporting: The National Quality Indicators in Residential Aged Care Program for all residential aged care facilities (RACFs) receiving Commonwealth subsidies

 
The call for papers is now open and we are calling for expressions of interest in speaking in the conference.
