Australia is facing a shortage of at least 110,000 direct aged-care workers within the next decade, unless urgent action is taken to boost the workforce.
That’s one of the findings of our latest report, which also found the shortage will balloon to more than 400,000 workers by 2050 unless we take dramatic action now. Australia has failed to prepare for this challenge, but there ARE steps we can take to improve the system.
To discuss CEDA’s findings and potential solutions, CEDA Chief Economist Jarrod Ball is joined by Aged & Community Services Australia CEO Patricia Sparrow; Australian Nursing and Midwifery Federation Federal Assistant Secretary Lori-Anne Sharp; and the author of our report, CEDA Senior Economist Cassandra Winzar.
But first, Jarrod is joined by CEDA's Chief Executive Melinda Cilento to discuss some of the issues we’re thinking about at CEDA this week.
