Mount Gambier Forum: Managing Risk and Maximising Opportunities
May 31st, 2018

TOPIC: Managing Risk and Maximising Opportunities – Challenging the way we have thought about risk management in the Aged Care Sector

Too often we think about risk as mere compliance. Focused on what might go wrong, and not on what must go right.

Ansvar recently hosted a forum targeted at aged care providers in Mount Gambier, South Australia, where Ansvar Specialists discussed ‘Managing Risk and Maximising Opportunities – Challenging the way we have thought about risk management in the Aged Care Sector’.

The session challenged aged care providers to refocus their risk management; in times of greater complexity and uncertainty, traditional approaches are no longer adequate.

-Be part of new thinking and approaches with risk;
-Explore its important role in governance and leadership and in the context of aged care
-Share experiences and take away improvement opportunities.

Ansvar speakers who conducted the forum were Anthony Black, Risk Solutions Consultant and Nick Henley, SA/NT State Manager.

-Anthony is a passionate advocate of the value of risk management in good governance and achieving objectives. As a former nurse and health service executive, he understands the challenges and uncertainties of managing complex services particularly in the aged care sector where he has held management roles.

Anthony takes a practical and tailored approach to risk management; designed to shift focus from traditional methods to more strategic thinking and approaches.

-Nick is a senior insurance professional, who brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the role with over 25 years in the industry having previously worked for Allianz, Lumley, and QBE – UAA together with various broking roles.

Participants shared experiences with risk management and ways they approached risk management in their organisations. The reasons to rethink and improve risk management were presented and discussed. The current risk environment for Aged Services was identified and thoughts shared about the “next big things coming” and the importance of risk management with dealing with these.

There was strong interest in how to lift risk management to a more strategic level and how to change risk cultures, so that risk management becomes more proactive, future orientated and linked to organisational objectives.

Four areas of focus to improve risk management for aged services were presented and participants identified opportunities to improve their own organisation’s risk management framework.
