Health & ageing

The COVID-19 pandemic has heightened the challenges facing Australia’s health and aged care systems. Demand for mental health services has increased dramatically causing strain on a system unable to meet the community’s needs. Physical health, mental health, and aged care service providers all face acute workforce shortages.

Rapid population growth in some areas means providers struggle to meet demand, while in others population decline threatens service viability. Rapidly changing technology provides new opportunities but also raises training and investment issues.

Consumer and carer expectations about the way in which their health and ageing needs are met are changing with more people wanting support, treatment and care in their home. This requires reshaping of service delivery and funding models.
