Your chance to contribute to future aged care staffing models
Over the last two decades, there have been several attempts to establish a method of determining safe staffing levels and skills mix in the aged care sector.
During 2011-2012, more than 200 aged care services participated in a national research project – funded by the Australian Government and undertaken by the Australian Nursing and Midwifery Federation – with the goal of finding a solution to this ongoing issue.
However, a funding shortfall meant that we were unable to finish this important work. While a final report provided a broad picture of staffing and skills mix in the aged care sector, it did not address the adequacy of current staffing arrangements.
Recognising the importance this project, ANMF Federal Executive has determined to fund the completion of the project to its original scope.
How can you help?
We need as much feedback as we can possibly gather – from aged care staff, residents, friends and family and any other interested stakeholders.
Thank you in advance for your contribution to this important work.
