Aged care report marks the start of big change

Michael McLaren

Professor Joseph Ibrahim, Head of the Health Law and Ageing Research Unit, Department of Forensic Medicine, Monash University, joins Michael to discuss the Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety which has delivered a massive report of more than 2000 pages in eight volumes with 148 recommendations.

 

Professor Ibrahim writes, ‘The royal commission’s report suggests up to 30 per cent of residents have suffered through sub-optimal care. A staggering number.’

 

‘A major factor contributing to this egregious failure is the structure and function of the workforce. Simply put, there are not enough people working in aged care, and not enough with the right skill set.’

 

 

‘Substantial changes are needed. The royal commission’s final report and recommendations make for a solid start.’
