The Government is continuing its commitment to improving the quality of aged care services by working with the industry to build an aged care workforce that will meet Australia’s future needs.

This initiative will support the newly established Aged Care Workforce Industry Council by providing specialist support to work with aged care service providers, health and aged care workers and consumers. This additional support will focus on the key areas of care delivery and improving business systems.

Further, this initiative will bring together Primary Health Networks, local hospital networks, acute health workers, aged care assessment teams and providers and consumers, to look at how we can provide better, coordinated care to people moving through the health and aged care systems.
