Submission from NSWNMA to Australian Law Reform Inquiry into Elder Abuse

As part of our preparations for this submission we consulted our members and the community through a survey and a national aged care telephone dial-in. Their testimonials and responses are included in this document and serve to highlight the frontline issues affecting the aged care workforce and recipients of aged care services. This followed an initial survey and report on elder abuse in residential aged care facilities conducted in late 2015, which we submit as an appendix.
