Please join us at 1pm AEST on Wednesday 29 January for a presentation and discussion of LASA’s response to the Royal Commission’s Consultation Paper on Program Design for Aged Care.

In this comprehensive session Sean Rooney, Chief Executive Officer of Leading Age Services Australia and Tim Hicks, General Manager Policy & Advocacy of Leading Age Services Australia will present an overview of our submission.  Fundamental long-term reform is important, but the Commission’s recommendations also need to ensure that immediate issues can be addressed without waiting for more complex long-term changes.  This session will outline our specific responses to the proposals presented by the Commissioners and present an overview of our thinking on industry solutions for the future, which are being developed for submission to the Royal Commission later this year.
