Attention providers: new Aged Care Quality Standards start July

Published on

Assessment against the new standards by the Australian Aged Care Quality Agency (ACCQA) will start from 1 July 2019, giving providers 12 months to make any changes needed to meet the new requirements.

Each standard will have three aspects: a statement of outcome for the consumer; a statement of expectation for the organisation; and organisational requirements to demonstrate that the standard has been met.

11 aged care providers are currently piloting the standards and their supporting guidance material before end-to-end testing starts this month.

To register your interest in the pilot, email qualityagencypolicy@aacqa.gov.au.
