Webinar content

Residential aged care providers and people who work in residential care are encouraged to participate in the webinar.

The webinar will include:

  • information about new funding models in residential aged care

  • how we will improve service choice for senior Australians who need and use aged care.

The presenters will discuss the important changes to quality and safety in residential aged care announced in the 2021-22 Budget and in response to the Aged Care Royal Commission.

During the webinar you will have the opportunity to say what you think is important when implementing changes in residential aged care settings and how we can best work with residential providers and aged care workers to make these changes.
