Supplementary response to the Productivity Commission: draft report 'Caring for Older Australians'
Published: 16 May 2011
The QNU seeks leave of the Productivity Commission (the Commission) to make a supplementary response to the draft report Caring for Older Australians (the report). We have provided input to the Australian Nursing Federation’s response to the report (submission number 772) and would now like to provide the Commission with details of specific case studies in Queensland that highlight many of the points we have previously made regarding accountability in public funding for aged care. We have not introduced this material until this time because we were hopeful that enterprise bargaining negotiations might be able to produce an acceptable outcome for our aged care nurses. Unfortunately recent events indicate that this will not eventuate. Therefore we provide the following case studies as examples of why the focus on funding needs to be not only on the mechanism but also on transparency and greater accountability of providers in the way that funding is used.
