Presentation: Learnings from the Aged Care Quality and Safety Royal Commission
The Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety is considered by many to be a watershed moment for the aged care industry, particularly in relation to transforming the way in which aged care is provided now and in the future. It is seen by many as a chance to ensure Australia’s aged care system is sustainable and, in a position, to cater for the changing needs of Australia’s ageing population.
The effects of the Royal Commission will impact not only aged care providers but also third parties who have contracts and tenders with aged care facilities – for instance, service contractors. With this in mind, we think it is important for aged care providers and third-party contractors to have an equal understanding of the potential effects of the Royal Commission and its impact on the provision of relevant care and services going forward.
