Webinar – Unpacking the exposure draft of the new Aged Care Act

Australia’s new rights-based Aged Care Act will be the cornerstone of quality aged care. The exposure draft is currently open for consultation.

OPAN and COTA Australia are encouraging older people, their families, and anyone with an interest in aged care to have their final say before the Bill goes to Parliament.  

To better understand the detail of this long-awaited piece of legislation, and what it means for you or someone you care for, sign up for our upcoming webinar, What’s at stake? Unpacking the exposure draft of the new Aged Care Act, on Tuesday, 9 January, 1–2.30pm AEDT.

Expert panellists include:

  • Craig Gear, CEO, Older Persons Advocacy Network (OPAN)
  • Pat Sparrow, CEO, COTA Australia
  • Val Fell, member of the Aged Care Council of Elders and OPAN’s National Older Persons Reference Group and ambassador for COTA Australia.
