Overview

How strong is your governance & leadership?
In partnership with:


Hear from Ian Yates, Chief Executive of COTA & Pat Sparrow, Chief Executive Officer of ACSA on why you should attend the COTA & ACSA Governance in Aged Care conference.

Boards governing aged care providers are increasingly under scrutiny during this period of immense change for aged care providers. With the Royal Commission underway, providers are being called at short notice to provide evidence and account for the quality and safety of their service delivery. At the same time, the new Aged Care Safety and Quality Commission is paving the way towards accreditation against the new standards from July this year, with a specific focus on governance with Standard 8, and the government continues a reform agenda with a focus on consumer directed care.

To survive and thrive during this challenging time, boards need to be well informed of the current issues facing aged care providers and have the tools and frameworks in place to make effective decisions.

The Governance in Aged Care conference will address the role of board members, the relationship between the board and the management function, how best to engage with stakeholders and meet compliance and better manage risk for home and residential aged care.

What People Are Saying

  • “Excellent informative conference. The speakers were the decision and policy makers, which ensured we were not hearing things third hand and enabled attendees to get a good sense of where the industry is at, where it may be going, and the challenges that are still to be addressed. Very appropriate and topical in regards to proposed future direction of a highly regulated, high risk rapidly changing industry.”
