This offering is about the ways in which the work of the recent review into aged care was conducted. The account is not exhaustive but is illustrative of some of the major issues experienced. Some of the policy themes and outcomes were explored in the recent Shann Memorial Lecture [1]. The circumstances with which the review was confronted are treated in the second part of the paper. This comes in two segments with the first explaining the measures in place and the second exploring some of the important questions arising from initial considerations of those measures. The onerous nature of the queries should be acknowledged. The following part is about the activities of the review in an effort to cast light on questions raised by the measures in place in relation to the Terms of Reference. The dual task of the review reflected the very substantial lack of empirical work on the aged care industry as well as evidence on the efforts of boards and managements of entities providing aged care services. This coverage is taken further in the final segment which deals with some of the major issues which the review was seeking to address. Some are of the greatest strategic moment.
