With submissions into the Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety now open, the Australian Nursing and Midwifery Federation has established an ANMF working group from across the country with expertise in aged care to prepare a national submission.
The submission will draw on the extensive material already gathered by the ANMF over many years of campaigning and responding to inquiries into aged care. Key to the submission will be presenting the evidence in support of minimum staffing ratios and appropriate skill mixes in aged care.
The Royal Commission will hold its preliminary hearing in Adelaide at 10am on Friday 18 January, with subsequent hearings to commence from February.
