Developing a Consumer Driven Aged Care Workforce

How can we grow workforce capacity to meet increasing demand?

Australia is facing an unprecedented workforce shortage in aged care. The Australian Productivity Commission report, Caring for older Australians (2011), stated that by 2050 the projected workforce deficit in aged care supply would reach almost 280,000. This occurs just as the industry is undergoing significant reform, when we need to be investing in the workforce, developing them and retaining them.

As we move toward a more market-based, consumer-driven aged care system; how do you plan to invest in your staff to ensure they are well equipped with the knowledge, tools, models and commitment to carry these changes forward?

The agenda focuses on the following core areas:

Strategy and planning to achieve a more responsible, flexible workforce

Educating and coaching staff to ensure an organisation-wide consumer centred values system

Empowering staff and giving them the tools to operationalise aged care reforms

Investing in workforce development and leadership programs

Re-creating value and recognition in the profession to attract and retain high quality skilled workers

Leveraging technology to improve staff productivity while enhancing quality of care
