SHOWCASE AREA

PART OF THE NATIONAL AGED CARE CONVENTION

Establishing a sustainable aged care workforce in Australia is vital for ensuring long-term quality care for our ageing population. 

With a new Aged Care Act coming into place in 2025, Aged Care providers across Australia are facing unparalleled challenges in aligning their recruitment, retention, and training strategies with the heightened compliance and operational demands of the forthcoming regulatory reforms.

In order to deliver safe and quality care, there’s a critical need for Aged Care workforces to embrace innovative recruitment and retention strategies, workforce management solutions and the latest training and development solutions.

Bringing together Australia’s largest aged care organisations, this national forum will help providers looking to increase recruitment and retention, build workforce efficiencies, upgrade learning and development opportunities and strengthen workplace wellbeing.
