The Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety – Interim report has highlighted poor practices in the treatment of our older citizens. Aged care boards have ultimate accountability for the quality and safety of care provided to its consumers and clients. However, what structures, processes and systems should the board ensure are in place, and what questions should a director ask to make sure they gain adequate ‘line of sight’ on quality and safety of the services provided?

Our hosts, Rosina Hislop, FAICD, and Janet Anderson PSM, Aged Care Quality and Safety Commissioner will examine contemporary governance issues for directors in the aged care sector.

They will cover:

• Reflections on Royal Commission into Aged Care

• How leadership in the boardroom promotes a culture focused on safety and quality

• Boardroom priorities in aged care

• How directors are tackling workforce planning issues in aged care

• Practical ways in which boards are addressing the Aged Care Quality and Safety Commission Quality Standard 8 – Organisational Governance

• Linkages with good governance principles, risk management and strategy

Practically based, this webinar will stimulate thinking, generate ideas and lead you to develop your own questions to ensure quality of care can be attained. It is designed for board directors seeking to improve their knowledge and acquire new skills in governing organisations that provide services and care to older people.
