Aged Care Quality Standards Webinar
What does the move to an ‘outcomes focus’ in the Quality Standards mean for providers of age services?
From 1 July 2019 the new Aged Care Quality Standards, developed as part of the Single Aged Care Quality Framework will be introduced. The Aged Care Quality Standards will apply to all aged care services receiving Commonwealth Government subsidies.
Transition to the Standards will require:
- Greater emphasis on consumer outcomes and experience;
- Alignment of existing systems and processes underpinning the provision of safe and quality services to each of the eight individual Standards; and
- Reviewing the breadth of evidence currently available that aligns with each Standard to determine whether the current scope of evidence is satisfactory, in need of revision, or has identified gaps that need to be addressed.
This webinar will introduce participants to:
- A simple and balanced approach for navigating this transition process,
- Provide practical examples of what services can do to demonstrate evidence of the outcomes they achieve for their consumers, and
- Will introduce a range of LASA products to be made available to service providers to support the transition process in the lead up to 1 July 2019 and beyond.
Are you ready? A not to be missed webinar opportunity to dig deeper into what this change means for providers.
