Governing for Reform
In response to the Royal Commission’s final report Care, Dignity and Respect, the Australian Government is launching an innovative and highly tailored learning program for aged care leaders.
The Governing for Reform Program, led by the Aged Care Quality and Safety Commission, will support approved providers to get ahead of reform – strengthening their governance, policies and processes, leading change from the top and providing practical tools and guidance.
The program provides an opportunity for leaders to implement best practice in aged care governance and ensure the provision of safe and high-quality care. The program will provide access to highly specialised supports including workshops, online learning, podcasts, networking opportunities, coaching and webinars.
The Commission encourages all governance bodies, boards, and aged care leaders to participate in the program to be part of a collective drive to transform the aged care sector.
