China looks to SA’s aged care experts for training program

Published on

12 aged care managers from SA’s sister-state Shandong spent two weeks in Adelaide as part of the China (Qingdao) Aged Care Leadership Study Tour.

The training included both classroom lectures and tours of local aged care facilities, delivered in partnership with TAFE SA, the University of South Australia and ACH Group.

Organised by Australian Aged Care & Health Export Services (AACHES), the tour was funded by the Qingdao Government.

Aged care is a big business in China, with the Chinese Government predicted to spend US $1.3 trillion a year on healthcare by 2020.
