This two-day conference is suitable for CEOs, management and senior staff in aged care – both residential aged care and home care. We want to challenge thinking, promote discussion and provide practical information about better practice.
Effective Governance - a framework for aged care
Developed by the SA Innovation Hub, the Effective Governance framework for aged care gives an aged care provider's perspective on what constitutes effective governance through the indicators, measures, questions for deliberation, and stories that describe the continuum of governance practice leading to 'high performance'.
It is principle-based and provides a clear structure for exploration, self-assessment, quality improvement and strengthening performance in governance practice.
In the latter part of 2015, we actively sought feedback from the Let's talk about quality discussion paper, and held forums with service providers from home care and residential aged care, consumers, their families and carers, consumer advocates, industry peak bodies and academics - to explore and talk about the notion of quality.
