As of July 1st 2019, the new Aged Care Quality Standards will be in place. The Aged Care Quality Standards will apply to all aged care services including residential care, home care, flexible care and services under the Commonwealth Home Support Program.
With eight new standards, a stronger consumer focus and clearly articulated care and service expectations, now is the time to familiarise and educate yourself with the new standards. To help you prepare and meet the new standards, Go1 has partnered with Australian training provider Aged Care Learning Solutions (ACLS) to bring you all the online training courses you need to be ACQS compliant.
To help you prepare for the new standards, ACLS has created the "About Me" series, which contains nine highly engaging 10-15 minute videos introducing the new standards from the consumer perspective.
The first free introductory video introduces your workforce to the concept of the consumer being at the centre of the new standards. The learner will gain a practical understanding of the Aged Care Quality Standards with scenarios that facilitate the application of their learning.
You can watch the first video of the ACLS "About Me" series right here:
Don’t be caught out when the assessment and monitoring against the standards takes effect. Stay tuned on the Go1 blog each week to see our next installments of the "About Me" series, as well as more information around each individual standard. We are ready, are you?
