ROYAL COMMISSION: Aged care industry doesn’t support innovation

Tamar Krebs and Jonathan Gavshon, Co-CEOs of Group Homes Australia, on a panel of aged care representatives explaining to the Commission best ways to provide good practice care and changes needed in the industry.

 

Supplied video obtained Tuesday, May 14, 2019 of Lucille Claire O’Flaherty, CEO, Glenview, Jennifer Lawrence, CEO, Brightwater Care Group and Jonathan Gavshon from Group Homes Australia giving evidence at the Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety. Responding to a question from Counsel Assisting Ms Brooke Hutchins, they give their view on how well the aged care system “incentivises good practice”. The commission is told the system does not incentivise innovation and bases funding on numbers of medications, showers and meals, not on outcomes for residents.
