The release of the Aged Care Royal Commission’s Final Report is a pivotal moment for the sector. Throughout the Royal Commission, the Commissioners haven’t held back in their critique of the struggles facing the sector and its failings in caring for older Australians. After countless government reviews and reforms, years of media scrutiny, and public outcry over quality failures, including the tragic outbreaks of COVID-19, this is the moment for transformative change. But change doesn’t come easy.

While there is an expectation that a significant government response will be needed, providers cannot escape the burden of responsibility that falls on them to respond appropriately and to build a better future.

As we’ve seen in the aftermath of other Royal Commissions, such as the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse, and the Financial Services Royal Commission, this is not an easy road for organisations to navigate. While there’s no road map, there are valuable lessons that Aged Care providers can learn from the many organisations involved in these Royal Commissions that have undergone changes in leadership and governance structures, policy re-writes and new operational frameworks, not to mention the work of rebuilding trust with consumers.

This 2 part Web Series brings together aged care experts and out of sector leaders who have journeyed through previous Royal Commissions, to share their strategic insights and practical advice tested through their own experiences. It is a unique opportunity for aged care providers to inform and enhance their organisational response to the Royal Commission.

Who should attend?
Leaders, Executives and Board Members from Home and Residential Aged Care Providers
