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.
