Aged Care Plenary Day One: Tuesday, 23 July 2019

Tuesday, July 23rd, 2019

9:10 AM Keynote Presentation: What Can We Expect to See Emerge from the Aged Care Royal Commission and Aged Care Advocacy Going Forward

By July, it will be time to reflect and speculate on the impact of the Royal Commission. This session will cover what we can expect to see in the coming months, including:

  • Assessing the extent of substandard care in residential and home care
  • The challenge of providing care to older people living with disabilities and dementia, and addressing their care needs as they age
  • Future challenges, opportunities and implications in the context of changing demographics

10:10 AM THE GREAT DEBATE: Do We Need Mandated Staffing Ratios in Aged Care?

Are we better off focusing on the quality outcomes for older Australians rather than mandated staffing ratios? Consisting of two teams of three, this session will address some of the industry's most contentious topics in an entertaining new format!
