Held in Cairns from 12-14 September, there is just enough time to register to be part of the program, which focuses on the theme ‘Power of Change’.
With the ongoing reforms in home and residential care and emerging policy areas, such as housing and retirement incomes, impacting on aged care, ACSA Chief Executive Pat Sparrow says the 2017 National Summit is a chance to learn more about the bigger questions and themes shaping the experience of aged care in our communities.
“2017 has been a year of intense change – and challenge – for the industry, so I’m looking forward to this event as an opportunity to get the brightest minds in the sector together for some valuable reflection on lessons learned,” she says.
“I hope delegates can leave our National Summit with a clearer idea of the many achievements of the sector to date, as well as some new strategies for tackling challenges that lie ahead as we embrace the Aged Care Roadmap and the path of reform.”
Topics lined up to be delivered by industry experts include: the future of small aged care providers in rural and remote communities, LGBTI Australians in aged care, the role of technology in the design of aged care services, the next generation of leaders in aged care, emerging policy areas in aged care, the implementation of new national guidelines for spiritual care in aged care and many more.
Among the key speakers set to take to the National Summit stage are Phillip Schmaal, Catherine Rule, Jennene Buckley, Dr Catherine Barrett as well as many others included in the three-day program.
