Abstract 

Modelling the demand side of the aged care workforce is easy. What constraints will be applied to the supply side and what can be done about it. What can the sector realistically deliver in aiming to deliver on government policy.  What will it cost?

Understanding the supply side constraints on the aged care workforce, and demand side that will lead to increasing squeezes on the ability of the sector to deliver.

We know there are workforce shortages. What are the causes and how long will it take to recover – the labour market as a dynamic cost in an environment of regulated revenues.
