Do you have strong governance practices to support you now & into the future?

In partnership with:

With the Royal Commission well underway and accreditation against the new Aged Care Quality Standards driving change at all levels, board members need to be equipped with a good understanding of the current challenges to help them make informed decisions for now and into the future. The need for effective governance and strong leadership is more necessary than ever before, with board accountability and governance under the spotlight in Standard 8 of the Aged Care Quality Standards.

To address these challenges, the 2nd Governance in Aged Care conference has been developed in partnership with COTA Australia and ACSA to support you to effectively lead and govern your aged care service into the future. You will walk away with a deeper understanding of what good governance structures and culture looks like in practice, and how you could apply this to your own organisation. You will learn how to optimise the relationship between the board and executive functions to ensure compliance, enhance accountability, better manage risk and drive continuous improvement.
