FECCA invites consumers and providers to participate in the Aged Care Diversity Framework Consultation

On December 6th, the Minister for Aged Care and Minister for Indigenous Health The Hon Ken Wyatt AM, MP launched Australia's Aged Care Diversity Framework.  The framework represents an important step towards a more inclusive future for aged care services in Australia and is designed to complement the Single Quality Framework due to be released in July 2018.  The Diversity Framework seeks to embed diversity in the design and delivery of aged care and support actions to address perceived or actual barriers to consumers accessing equitable and quality aged care while enabling consumers and carers to be partners in this process.

In an effort to enable consumers and carers to participate in the aged care design process, FECCA has been conducting consultations with wide groups of stakeholders from Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) backgrounds.  FECCA invite both consumers and providers to have their say via available surveys:
For consumers: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/DRWNLBC
For providers: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/DRN38SY

Both surveys will be open until 28 February. For more information contact:
