The Royal Commission is a unique challenge and opportunity for the aged care industry to reflect on and identify areas for improvement, while also strategising for the future. While the government continues with ongoing reform, it is essential that providers are actively engaged in this watershed moment for aged care in Australia. Indeed, while the Royal Commission may eventually make recommendations to government, there is also an immense responsibility for providers themselves to drive positive change, and already there are key areas wherein the most proactive, leading providers are innovating to improve and ensure quality.
