The importance of co-design

Australia’s population is ageing, as it is around the world. As we grow older, our needs and wants change which means new models of care and approaches to ageing are needed to help improve the lives and wellbeing of those in our communities.


The Global Centre for Modern Ageing (GCMA) is committed to inspiring governments, designers, businesses and researchers to seek and develop solutions that enable people to live well and age well.  To be successful, end-users must be at the centre of the design process.

Ms Julianne Parkinson, GCMA Chief Executive, will share insights into the global modern ageing market, how a co-creation process can ensure the community’s needs are reflected in design and learnings from their nation leading project co-designing the future Strathalbyn aged care facility and precinct.

Hear how you can develop a place that the community truly values - where residents want to live, families want to visit, teams want to work and in which the community is actively involved.


Designing Outdoor spaces for people with Dementia :

Research has long shown us the cognitive, physical and emotional benefits of regular time spent outside connecting with nature. However research also shows that if you are living with dementia your opportunity to access the outdoors can be severely restricted. Exploring accessible design, meaningful engagement and the latest evidence on outdoor access enhancement for people living with dementia this practical session will equip you to maximise opportunities for enhancing wellbeing through designing for accessibility to garden spaces and bringing nature inside through smart design.

Accessible Design for Universal Access & Hidden Disabilities - the NCC & DDA Claims 

  This presentation will focus on population statistics of physically impaired users ; 

- Impairments that aren’t visible, well known, or recognised in the NCC.

- Comply with what? – A discussion on “Compliance with the NCC doesn’t mean good design or protect you from DDA claims”.

- Conflicts between good design for some accessible user groups, but not for others

Human Centred Design for Healthcare Facilities


Designing for both the patients and staff in facilities providing healthcare has very evidently evolved over the years. From the emergence of new technology to making a patient feel at home when they are at their most vulnerable, there are many design factors to consider in order to achieve the best outcome for the end user. Kate Manser, Interite Healthcare Interiors, uses her 30 years in design experience to explain the importance of good design in healthcare spaces. Learn about how the following factors are carefully considered when designing for the aged, people with disability and general medical practice.  


  • Patient experience

  • Functionality

  • Way finding

  • Technology

  • Infection control

  • Design aesthetics and pallet

  • Acoustics

  • Lighting

  • Case studies

Governance in Aged Care

Steven Coghlan

Governance Institute of Australia 

The aged care sector is under the spotlight like never before and this means that the focus must be on governance. While boards in the aged care sector grapple with the crisis, they need to ensure there is a focus on good governance in order to overcome the immediate hurdles and to set their organisation up for recovery.   


To assist the sector, Governance Institute recently revised and relaunched its Adding value to governance in aged care guide covering the unique challenges of governance in a changing aged care sector. Steve will discuss highlights/insights from the guide appropriate for anyone currently on the board of an aged care provider — as well as anyone considering taking on a board position and the importance of governing reputation risk.

Rights, Risk and Safeguarding for People Living with Dementia   

Jason Burton - Dementia 360

With an increased focus on protecting the rights of people living with dementia in aged care services finding the balance between safeguarding rights, respecting dignity of risk and maintaining duty of care has never been more prominent.

This means approved providers which support NDIS participants will have responsibilities under both the Aged Care Quality and Safety Commission and NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commission regulatory frameworks. 

Obligations of NDIS providers under the NDIS Practice Standards and the NDIS Code of Conduct 

Samantha Jenkinson

State Director WA NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commission

The NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commission is an independent government agency that regulates the provision of supports and services to participants in the NDIS. It works to improve the quality of NDIS services and supports, prevent harm to and safeguard the rights of participants, investigate and resolve complaints relating to supports and services, and strengthen the skills and knowledge of providers and participants across Australia. 

The commencement of the NDIS Commission in WA is a significant development, and an important part of the approach to building inclusive, respectful and supportive communities across Australia that promote the rights and wellbeing of people with disability.


This session will cover the obligations of NDIS providers under the NDIS Practice Standards and the NDIS Code of Conduct. In particular there will be an opportunity to hear about and ask questions in relation to:

  • •Behaviour support

  • •Reportable incidents

  • •Complaints

  • •Compliance

Service design doesn't need to be about line items in a price guide -

Presentation and Q & A with NDIS Service Providers 



The architect's of the NDIS had a vision that individualized funding would lead to service innovation and quality outcomes.  

Instead we have a price guide of line items, services designed to meet the line items or providers using line items to create a

revenue stream that looks like the old block funding.  Are we seeing innovation in service design?  


Why are we not hearing countless stories of delighted, happy families?  Stories of individuals thriving because the compensation scheme has actually put choice and control back in the hands of the people it was designed to benefit?  Is it time to change tact, collaborate and innovate? What if we focused first on who we serve, rather than creating services from a pricing catalogue?

Michelle will also touch on the issue she hears time and again - housing security.  How do we eliminate this fear?  How do we transfer housing security to NDIS participants and their families.  It is the participant's scheme after all.
