Abstract

Executive summary
Background
The quality of life of older people is significantly affected by the way in which long-term care (LTC) is provided. This presents a challenge to governments to find ways to finance and regulate LTC to provide accessible and high-quality services. This review of international approaches to the provision of LTC has been conducted by Flinders University for the Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety. The aim of this review is to provide learnings for the aged care system in Australia and to situate the Australian aged care system within the appropriate global context.
