Professor Julie Ratcliffe, The Caring Futures Institutes’s Better Systems, and Health and Social Care Economics research lead, will share her insights into aged care funding at the virtual Aged Care Reform Conference, 2020.
Professor Ratcliffe will feature on a panel discussing Aged Care Funding, How to Grain Quality Improvements whilst Ensuring the Economic Sustainability of the System, alongside Grant Corderoy, Senior Partner at StewartBrown, Professor Henry Cutler of Macquarie University and Dr Monica Cations, also of Flinders University.
Professor Ratcliffe, an expert in health economics, led a research study recently for the Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety that found most current income taxpayers would be willing to pay more tax to ensure high quality aged care for all Australians.
The panel – presenting on day one of the two-day conference – will discuss the need to ensure a sustainable source of funding for now and the future, how recent aged care policies affect performance and testifying at the Royal Commission.
Dr Cations Hospital Research Foundation Early Career Fellow and Lecturer in Lifespan Development at Flinders University’s College of Education, Psychology and Social Work, is the chair of the virtual conference on 9 – 10 November.
