Draft Aged Care Quality Standards now available

Published

The Department of Health has been working with the aged care sector to develop the draft Aged Care Quality Standards.

A single set of quality standards is a key deliverable of the Single Aged Care Quality Framework. The Aged Care Quality Standards will apply to all aged care services and will replace the current four sets of aged care standards. The Standards have been structured so that organisations will only have to meet the Standards that are relevant to them.

The Australian Aged Care Quality Agency is developing guidance and educational material to support the Standards and has commenced piloting of the draft Standards and guidance material.

Subject to agreement by the Government, the Standards are expected to be implemented from 1 July 2018. A 12-month transition period will apply, meaning that assessment against the new Standards will commence from 1 July 2019.

The draft Standards are now available on the department’s website.
