Being Curious is a series of presentations from local SA and national initiatives who are curious about enhancing the lives of diverse populations in the community. This series will engage the listener with projects that will encourage you to get more curious. Once your curiosity is sparked, it will kindle further action to engage with these projects, connect older people from your service to them or even ignite your own ventures.

This is an opportunity to find out more about grass roots ideas which aim to impact the lives of marginalised or vulnerable people by strengthening their capacities physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually.


Friday 11th December: Research Report 6: Assessing views and preferences for quality of care; Caring Futures Institute

Caring Futures Institute are imagining a future where the highest standard of health and care is available for all who need it. Their investigations are seeking answers to some of the world’s greatest upcoming health challenges including an ageing population, chronic illness and the rising cost of health care. Research is focused across four key themes – better lives, better communities, better care and better systems– underpinned by technology; knowledge translation; health economics; and methodological innovations. And a future where technology and the real world collide for health innovations and reduced social isolation.

This session will review what their landmark new research shows. Will Australians strongly support increased funding to ensure universal access to high-quality aged care services in the future? The research was conducted for the Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety and is based on a survey of 10,000 adults not currently using aged care services.
