Patricia Sparrow, chief executive of Aged Community Services Australia (ACSA), has announced her resignation after five years with the peak organisation.
Under her leadership, Sparrow has steered ACSA through its transition into a national body, the royal commission and into the first and second wave of the COVD-19 pandemic.
“I think we have come a long way, but there is still a lot that can be done,” she said.
“Every reform process that we go through creates improvements and delivers some unexpected consequences.”
Sparrow joined Aged Care Insite to reflect on her time as ACSA chief executive, the trials and triumphs of the royal commission and COVID-19, and her hopes for the future of the industry.Do you have an idea for a story?
