The Royal Commission on Aged Care: What can it do and how can you contribute

Few of us have ever participated in a Royal Commission. This Forum will provide insights into three aspects of how the Aged Care Royal Commission is operating.

The scene will be set with an account of what Royal Commissions do, how they go about collecting information and developing recommendations, and what happens after the Commission presents its report.

Case studies of submissions will show how AAG members can participate. These case studies from research, consumer, dementia care and workforce perspectives will show the range of issues being presented to the Commission that are particular relevance to AAG members working in all fields of ageing.

  • Understand how the Royal Commission is operating.
  • Explore the range of issues raised in submissions from different perspectives.
  • Have your questions answered.
  • Learn how you can, and why you should, make a submission.
  • Gain an early view of possible future policy directions
