Adding value to governance in aged care

A practical guide for any potential or current member of a board of an aged care provider

The aged care sector plays a vital role in our social fabric by caring for some of Australia’s most vulnerable people. More than one million people currently receive aged care services in Australia — by 2050 it is expected that more than three and a half million Australians will be receiving aged care services as the Australian population ages and advances in medical technology increase Australians’ life expectancy.

We have developed this guide for the boards of organisations that provide aged care services. If you sit on the governing body of aged care provider or are considering doing so, this practical guide will help you:

  • deal with the issues challenging your organisations
  • comply with your obligations
  • understand how you can best add value to the governance of your organisation.

By completing your details, you will be added to our email database to receive governance and risk management updates. You can unsubscribe any time by clicking on the 'manage communications preferences' link at the base of any email.
