Event overview

Our vast aged care and health industry is changing – with disruption, new providers, new service expectations and investors. This while the complex aged care sector continues rapid growth. Population pressures see forecasts of the sector, with current annual government $13 billion expenditure, doubling.

At a critical time of change and in a year of much expected reform we consider economic implications of:

  • the rapidly changing mix between private and public providers;
  • deregulation of community based care and entry barriers to the highly regulated residential care market;
  • disruption in community services labour hire and staffing;
  • the business of consumer directed care; and
  • and the opportunities to innovate to meet growing demand well.

Join a senior audience of cross sector professionals and leaders to discuss good policy, the right regulatory settings and reform leadership for one of our fastest growing sectors and one of our economy’s fastest growing expenses.
