Interim report a platform for action: Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality & Safety

November 14, 2019

The Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety’s interim report: Neglect, released on 31 October, reflects the feedback of those who have had unacceptable experiences of aged care and provides a strong platform from which to take action.

While the VHA supports action to address the systemic causes of these matters, it is also committed to highlighting the many examples of high-quality and innovative care being provided in aged care services by a committed workforce, whose morale is being tested during this process.

There are limited examples of this high-quality care in the report to highlight the significant action required.
