2017 was a year of reviews in Australia's Aged Services industry with a key focus of achieving an aged care system underpinned by the principles of ageing in place, consumer directed care and market based competition.One strategy that has now been finalised, is that of the aged care quality standards. Building on three pillars: a single set of aged care standards operating across all aged care services; a streamlined approach to assessing provider performance against the quality standards; and improved information on quality to assist consumers to make choices regarding the care and the services they need.Now is the time to attend a LASA Masterclass to ease your anxiety and work through the systems you already have in place.
