Last night ACMA was pleased to sponsor and host an open forum on Aged Care Staffing. I would like to thank Rebekha Sharkie MP Federal member for Mayo, Moira Noonan Chair of the SA Sector Australian College of Nursing, Dr Rodney JileK Principal Advisor Aged Care Advisory Services and Rob Bonner Director Operations and Strategy AMNF for their participation in the forum. It was a positive discussion with a great deal of common agreement on future of aged care labour force management and training.
I also thank my friend and colleague Ian Henschke Chief Advocate for National Seniors for moderating the session. While we had a small audience attend in person, we had over 100 watching on line with very positive feedback being received .
Peter held the position of Director of Nursing with ECH in Victor Harbor from July 1994 to March 2001. He was appointed as the first private sector CEO for a ‘For Profit’ group in SA in 2002 until 2005.
In 2006, Peter formed Aged Care Management Australia, an independent national aged care consultancy that now employs 9 staff.
