In this webinar for Victorian residential aged care providers, ACSA has partnered with the Victorian Aged Care Response Centre.

Where are we now and what is the future direction?

The Victorian aged care sector was severely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Victorian Aged Care Response Centre (VACRC) provided a coordinated approach throughout the major outbreak period to deliver surge workforce, training and communication. In the months following the outbreaks, the Response Centre has continued to deliver recovery advice, planning direction and infection control measures.

Lessons learned from the outbreaks will enable the sector to enhance infection control and prevention methods, resources and protocols, as well as take advantage of new approaches to care delivery.

This webinar will review the experiences of major outbreaks in 2020 and explore how the outcomes will facilitate advancements. VACRC infection prevention experts will also review current epidemiology in Victoria and discuss the future of COVID-19 in Australia, including vaccination, long-term outlook and community transmission.

There will also be plenty of time for Q&A.
