AAG Presents - Webinar: Safe and inclusive care for Forgotten Australians and other trauma survivors

AAG presents a webinar:

Safe and inclusive care for Forgotten Australians and other trauma survivors

Monday 20th June,
1.30pm to 2.30pm (AEST)

This event will be delivered via Zoom

Forgotten Australians who have come from a background of complex trauma, have significant barriers to accessing appropriate care. Co-design projects, when effectively facilitated, can improve social care and access to services for marginalised groups. With an ageing population, appropriate aged care services to support ageing Care Leavers, trauma survivors and people with mental health concerns are crucial.

This webinar will introduce participants to the barriers to care for this cohort and demonstrate how to achieve safe and inclusive aged care for Forgotten Australians and other survivors of trauma.

The webinar will outline:

  • The barriers to care for Forgotten Australians
  • The essential elements in co-designing improved access and safety of care for Trauma survivors
  • The outcomes of the evaluation of the co-design process and the Real Care Second Time Around project

Attendees will learn about what organisational interventions are needed to make aged care accessible and safe for trauma survivors and the resources available to aged care providers to address access and equity for Care Leavers.
