CCTV in aged care bedrooms: Your privacy and rights
WHAT: CCTV in aged care bedrooms: Your privacy and rights forum
WHERE: University of South Australia’s Allan Scott auditorium.
WHEN: Thursday, 11 April 2019 from 6pm-8pm
The use of CCTVs in the bedrooms of aged care residents is becomingly increasing popular around the world – and for good reason.
The technology could soon be rolled out in South Australia following the introduction of a Private Members Bill in State Parliament.
SA-BEST MLC Frank Pangallo last year introduced a Bill which – if passed – will make it compulsory for aged care facilities to provide cameras in common areas and an “opt in” option where residents or their families can choose to have a CCTV camera installed in their private living quarters.
A forum, CCTV in aged care bedrooms: Your privacy and rights, will discuss a range of issues including the privacy, security and rights of residents who want to have CCTV technology installed in their private living quarters, as well as the legal responsibilities and duty of care of aged care operators.
It will also include a thought-provoking panel session. Those invited to participate include Health Minister, Stephen Wade; Labor Health spokesperson, Chris Picton; SA-BEST Ageing spokesperson, Frank Pangallo; and Greens Ageing spokesperson, Mark Parnell.
Prominent aged care expert and academic, Professor Wendy Lacey, will join the Q&A panel.
