ABC special investigation into nursing homes


Over the course of the past year, the Australian Broadcasting Corporation has been at the forefront of uncovering what is happening in aged care across the country.

In April, the ABC began a special investigation into the residential aged care industry via an online survey, from which they will doubtless gather insights and build more valuable coverage.

OPSO encourages you to fill out that survey, in addition to any contribution to this site that you care to make because the more voices are heard – and the more sources of those voices – the more lawmakers will not only be forced to sit up and listen but also be pressured to activate reforms.

SPECIAL NOTE: You can watch the results of this in-depth investigation on ABC TV on Monday, September 17, and Monday, September 24, in a two-part special that will be aired at 8.30pm AEST. If you miss these special programs, you may be able to watch them later on iView. You can also see the ABC’s growing collection of news stories relating to aged care online.

Let’s drive some constructive change!
