A dynamic workshop to cover thoroughly all key aspects of ACFI subsidy funding. Topics covered include where ACFI fits into the Care Planning Circle, the select care delivered by staff that contributes to an ACFI score. Detailed discussion on all the twelve (12) ACFI questions and associated business rules that matter. Also an update on any changes to ACFI and a brief review of future aged care funding proposals before government. Documentation required to support the ACFI claim is crucial and must meet the expectations of the department at a validation. Common errors are covered in depth too. This complex subject is presented in a down to earth practical language that all participants will understand. There is also ample opportunity for questions and answers.
