- How to ensure aged care services are providing good and safe care?
- What can be done to ensure there are enough good quality aged care homes and services for all the people who need them?
- Are there enough good quality services in remote, rural and regional Australia?
- What are the best ways to care for people living with dementia?
- What are the best ways to help care for young people living with disabilities who are living in aged care homes?
