The Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety will hold a series of hearings during the first half of 2020.
The first hearing will be conducted as a workshop and will focus on the redesign of the aged care system.
It will be held in Adelaide on Monday 10 February and Tuesday 11 February 2020.
This workshop follows the release in December 2019 of Consultation Paper 1 on program redesign, a call for submissions in response to that paper and consultation with stakeholders and experts in preparation for the workshop.
The workshop will be held at Adelaide Convention Centre from 10.00am (ACDT).
About the workshops:
Hearings in the form of workshops will be used to gather evidence from witnesses in a less formal setting than the public hearings held in 2019. Workshops will not be held in a hearing room or court-like setting. Workshops may involve multiple sessions over several days.
Counsel Assisting will facilitate discussion between workshop participants. The Commissioners will moderate the proceedings.
