Aged Care Royal Commission: first hearings to start next week

Published on

The Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety has announced the first public hearings in Adelaide will run from next Monday 11 February to Wednesday 13 February and from Monday 18 February to Friday 22 February, and cover:

  • “the concerns of advocacy bodies relating to the current state of the aged care system
  • the clinical issues affecting elderly people and general challenges that arise in meeting clinical needs
  • the concerns and view of medical and nursing professional bodies relating to the current state of the aged care system
  • demographic information relating to the provision of aged care services
  • the perspectives of government and regulators as to the state of the aged care system
  • the perspectives of workforce representative bodies as to the state of the aged care system
  • experiences of people receiving services in the aged care system or their family members.”

The aged care peaks and other stakeholders have already been approached to give evidence so we can expect a number of familiar faces to front the hearings.

Stay tuned.
