OVERVIEW:

The Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety is scheduled to deliver its Final Report on 26 February 2021.  This is a seminal moment for those who are engaged in any way in the delivery of aged care services and will set the agenda for the next 20 years.  These are to be 20 years with the most rapid increase in demand for services ever seen and from a cohort with the highest expectations ever experienced – and who deserve the best.  The impact of the changes which the recommendations will bring about will be unprecedented in a sector which has already experienced an unprecedented upheaval over the past 12 months.

Aged Care Transformed – Getting from Here to There

What we all hope will come from the Royal Commission inquiry is a new aged care system that meets the needs and expectations of older Australians, that is sustainable and which enables the individuals and organisations who deliver it to do so with quality and compassion. Join LASA and our guest experts as we consider, dissect and debate how the Royal Commission Final Report helps us in ‘getting there’ from the previous two years of deliberations, investigation and intense scrutiny.
