Webinar content

The aged care workforce is central to the quality of aged care in Australia and the reforms aim to better support aged care workers. The Australian Government is investing to grow a more skilled, professional workforce, which will play a critical role in achieving improved safety and quality of care outcomes for senior Australians who need and use aged care.

This webinar will be particularly relevant for aged care workers and providers, as well as senior Australians and their families and carers.

Find out how the reforms will support the enhancement of the aged care workforce through a focus on: 

  • growing and upskilling the workforce
  • financial support and incentives for aged care workers
  • support for workforce planning

We’ll ask you questions about you can see the reforms working for you and your workplace, and how we can best work with you to ensure outcomes for workers, providers and senior Australians.
