The Council is committed to working transparently with Aged Care providers, consumers, workers and Governments to implement A Matter of Care. Our collaboration is guided by our ACWIC Engagement Plan.
The Council will provide opportunities for consumers workers, providers and government to be involved in advancing elements of the strategic actions.
We understand the wealth of knowledge and expertise out there.
We hope that you will be willing to share this during our specific ‘call-outs’ for involvement.
The Council is seeking a consortium to develop a progressive job architecture, drawing on scenarios to understand best practice models of care which holistically address the physical, social and emotional needs of older people, to clearly identify job roles and career pathways – with an eye to what the sector may look like in the future. This project also seeks to model the workforce costs using this job architecture to estimate the relevant workforce costs. This will be used to inform what a future industrial relations framework could look like. Click here to view the tender, or it is available is on: https://www.australiantenders.com.au/
Strategic Action 1: Social Change Campaign: Aged and Community Services Australia (ACSA) is leading the creation of a social change campaign project plan which focuses on shifting negative perceptions of aged care and is to be implemented over the next three years. As part of the research to inform what social change is required, the Council would welcome aged care providers sharing any of their previous, current or planned relevant workforce research and/or campaigns.
