“Have a bias towards action – let’s see something happen now. You can break that big plan into small steps, and take the first step right away”— Indira Ghandi
The federal government has announced yet another investigation into the deaths and staffing crisis in aged care. ACRN believes 20+ inquiries and a Royal Commission are enough.
