AAG members focus on working through Royal Commission final recommendations for the coming weeks

After an initial consideration of the recommendations, AAG is pleased to see those recommendations that align with AAG and the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Ageing Advisory Group (ATSIAAG)’s submissions to the Royal Commission and AAG’s other publication, including the AAG Position Paper: Aged care workforce, funding and governance.

In the coming weeks, AAG will be working with its members to develop detailed responses to the Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety Final Report which was released on Monday 3 March 2021.

AAG members are encouraged to join one of the 15 AAG-member-only forums to discuss the Royal Commission final report recommendations we have planned between 9-19 March 2021 by registering by the link below. Thank you to those that have already registered.
