Leading Age Services Australia (LASA), the voice of aged care, will host a two-day Aged Care Transformed Forum, following the Royal Commission’s Final Report including comprehensive analysis from Aged Care Minister Greg Hunt and a raft of national experts.
“This seminal event will be analysing the Final Report and examining the implications of all aspects of how we deliver care, including quality and compliance, funding and finance, workforce and technology,” said LASA CEO Sean Rooney.
“This is an exceptional online Forum that will be vital for all aged care providers across the nation.
“This influential conference has attracted many high-profile presenters including the Minister for Health and Aged Care, the Minister for Aged Care Services, workforce expert Professor John Pollaers OAM and leading academic Professor Joseph Ibrahim from Monash University. We also have Craig Gear from OPAN and Ian Yates from COTA, alongside numerous leaders from across the aged care service providers.
“There are prominent leaders presenting from the Department of Health, National Seniors, unions, technology and the media. We are also honoured to have several CEOs of our valued Members and aged care providers addressing the Forum.”
The Forum will be held on the 9-10 March 2021, less than a fortnight after the Final Report is delivered on 26 February.
“The Royal Commission’s Final Report and events like this will help set the aged care agenda for this year and the next 20 years,” Mr Rooney said.
“Over the next two decades, we will see the most rapid increase in demand for age services, with high community expectations and the need to deliver care and support with quality, safety and compassion – always.
“The impact of the changes which the recommendations will bring about will be transformational in a sector which has already experienced an unprecedented upheaval over the past 12 months.”
Mr Rooney said he had high hopes the Royal Commission report would result in a world-class aged care system.
“We must meets the needs and expectations of older Australians, with a system that is high performing, respected and sustainable.” he said.
“I invite you to 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.”
