Assessment Visit Readiness - Accreditation and Unannounced

Register Online

The Australian aged care landscape is undergoing an enormous transformation and exponential change related to clinical and regulatory compliance. 

Consumers receiving services are older, frailer and with more complex comorbidities. This creates a challenging and, at times, confronting environment for clinical managers and leaders. 

This 2-hour online program sets the base of your understanding of all types of Assessment visits, the role of the Commission, the role of Quality Assessors and the processes applicable. 

Through this course, you will develop a working understanding of the themes associated with requirements ‘Not Mets’ and understand the implication of the non-compliance. You will develop a practical and working understanding of the risk-based approach in order that you improve your self-assessment, and PCI and have a provider plan in place ready to bring your team together when the Commission arrives at your service. This program will help you deliver on your obligations during each and every Performance Assessment. 

Aimed at clinical managers and leaders working in residential aged care and home care services, the program navigates the complexity of the changing environment, in line with changing consumer expectations. In particular, this course provides the essential knowledge and understanding of clinical governance and care management frameworks to enable the provision of safe and quality care and an improved lived experience for consumers.’
