Aged care in Australia is on the cusp of entering a new era with the anticipated introduction of a new Aged Care Act, new regulatory framework and strengthened Aged Care Quality Standards, ensuring a person centred approach to the delivery of care.
To understand the upcoming reforms and what they will mean in practice, we are hosting a special national conference on Tuesday 23–Wednesday 24 April 2024 at the Adelaide Convention Centre.
This free conference will bring together residential and home services providers to explore and share how the sector can best be prepared, and to look at how the sector is continuously improving to deliver safe, quality aged care.
You can view the program here.
Virtual registration is now open!
Registration to attend the conference is free for providers of residential care, home care, Commonwealth Home Support Programme services, and National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Flexible Aged Care Program services.
Registrations to attend the conference in-person have now closed as we have reached full capacity.
In response to the high demand to participate in this conference, we are pleased to announce the availability of virtual registration to participate in the conference. This will enable you, if you had not yet registered, to access the 2-day conference remotely. Once we confirm your registration by email for the virtual sessions, you will receive detailed instructions one week prior to the conference on how you will be able to log on and live stream the conference.
