We have broken our courses down into short sessions to enable minimal interruption to your working day and make attendance easily accessible from any location in Australia.

An online workshop to prepare providers for their quality review

 A quality review by the Aged Care Quality and Safety Commission, the regulators of home and community care providers, is conducted at least once every three years. It is the process of reviewing the quality of services delivered against the Aged Care Quality Standards.

 Every aged care home provider has to show the Commission that it meets these Standards. This is assessed through monitoring visits, reviews, and feedback from those receiving care and services. The results are published in the Find a provider tool on the My Aged Care Website for consumers.

 This workshop develops the competency of home and community care providers to conduct their own internal quality assurance activities in order to self-assess their preparedness for a quality review by the Commission. This workshop fine tunes the abilities of those with an interest in quality to initiate, lead and report on quality assurance activities.

Who should attend?

Home and community care board members, non-executive directors, and employees with responsibility for quality assurance processes and successful compliance outcomes.
