With the announcement of the 2021 Federal Budget, came the Government’s response to the recommendations of the Aged Care Royal Commission. Among the mandatory initiatives; a minimum of 200 face-to-face care minutes with each resident daily, including 40 minutes with a registered nurse. This was accompanied by an influx of reporting requirements that signal the need for significant data, integration, and technology to empower workers.
However, a new report from the Global Centre for Modern Ageing and Google Chrome Enterprise tells us that if aged care is to benefit from digital transformation, it must overcome workplace barriers including poor digital literacy, technical limitations, and workplace cultures. How will the aged care workforce transition to the effective management of data, without exacerbating major issues already impacting the industry, such as increased administrative burden?
Joining us as we discuss how to support the aged care workforce through this period of significant change is a panel with many years of experience leading aged care workers in various positions throughout their careers. The panel includes; Louise O’Neill (CEO of the Aged Care Workforce Industry Council), Dr Nicole Brooke (CEO of the Australian Community Industry Alliance), Tammy Sherwood (CEO of Person Centred Software), and Peter Newing (General Manager of Retirement Living & Technology at Presbyterian Aged Care NSW & ACT).
Join Jay Malone (Novigi, Client Partner) and Sean McKeown (Inside Ageing), along with our expert panel at 1 pm (Sydney/Melbourne/Canberra time), Wednesday 23 June as they discuss the future enablement of the aged care workforce. Join the conversation and register today!
