Aged Care Update

In early March we prepared a submission on the exposure draft of the new Aged Care Bill.

Our submission seeks to ensure that amendments embed reablement through the provision of allied health services including occupational therapy, safeguard rights of individuals, support consumer choice as defined by best practice, and provide needs-based care through best practice assessments.

OTA also provided input into AHPA’s submission, that was consistent with the content of the OTA submission.

In February we met with Senator Anne Ruston, who is the Shadow Minister for Health and Aged Care, to discuss OTA’s concerns around the erosion of allied health in residential aged care.
