PRESENTER: Steve Zanon – Director, Proactive Ageing
LOCATION: Online – Zoom

Australia continues its journey down the path of transitioning to ever more refined ‘Consumer Centric Care’ and the new Aged Care ACT will improve the legislative foundations for our aged care system designed to deliver better outcomes for older people. This is occurring in an environment where healthcare and social assistance is by far Australia’s largest and fastest growing employment sector, and as such is garnering ever more government attention, particularly in terms of services innovation and workforce productivity. Internationally, the same influences are in play. The World Economic Forum sees the emerging Care Economy as fundamental to human development around the world, indicating that 40% of all projected job opportunities in emerging professions will be created in the care sector.

In this presentation we will explore:

  • Four transformative megatrends that are affecting the aged and community care sector.
  • A new and more integrative senior care ecosystem and workforce framework.
  • Opportunities for Australian aged care providers in setting new global standards of care.
  • International perspective on future jobs, a new ‘Integrated Career Pathways’ framework fit for delivering the next generation of aged care services.
  • What we can learn from several case studies in these areas that Steve has been working on.
