On 8 August, the Productivity Commission released the final report of its Caring for Older Australians Inquiry.
At the time of printing, the federal government is due to publically release the Productivity Commissionís final report in its Caring for older Australians Inquiry.
The voices of nurses who work with older people in aged care settings must be considered when determining future possibilities for our aged care system:- this was the message from QNU Secretary Beth Mohle at her appearance before the Productivity Commissionís Caring for Older Australians inquiry in April.
QNU members and staff will this month appear before the Productivity Commission to outline solutions to the problems plaguing aged care.
Aged care nurses are becoming increasingly frustrated at limitations placed on their capacity to provide nursing. Registered nurse Irene McInerney, who works at a not-for-profit aged care facility on the Sunshine Coast, has had enough. Irene is speaking out about the situation in aged care in the hope that others will be inspired to take action.
Some important activities and events will occur in the coming weeks as our Because We Care campaign kicks off for 2011. Previously publicised Valentineís Day (14 February) activities have been postponed until March and April to allow members and QNU staff to focus on the flood and cyclone recovery effort.
