AAG Member only forums for responding to Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety final report in 2021
With the Royal Commission final report due on 26 February 2021, AAG members and staff have begun planning how to get together to discuss the recommendations and how they can inform future AAG work. You can view all AAG and the ATSIAAG’s previous responses to the Royal Commission here on the AAG website.
AAG's Special Interest Groups (SIGs), the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Ageing Advisory Group (ATSIAAG) and other AAG members have identified the need for a range of forums exploring different topics, with the first session commencing on Tuesday the 9th of March 2021.
We have already had a terrific response from members registering for these forums but there are still spots left. Click here to find out more and register. Join us for as many of these member-only forums as you are able to and in doing so help to inform AAG’s responses to the Royal Commission.

The conversation with the 2020 Gary Andrews Fellow, Professor Michael Poulain, rated highly with delegates of the 2020 AAG Conference – Digital. Despite the need to pivot to a digital format for the 53rdAAG conference, feedback from attendees remained high with the plenary sessions ‘standing out’
Professor Poulain’s insight into Blue zones and longevity proved to hit a cord with delegates. To view the half an hour conversation with Professor Michel Poulain at the AAG Conference, click here
