Quality commission steps up publication of regulatory outcomes

Published

Findings from the national quality indicators program will be online later this year and chemical restraints and falls are likely to be added to the list of measures, the quality commissioner has told an aged care conference.

The National Aged Care Quality Indicator Program, which began on 1 January 2016 as a voluntary program, will be compulsory for all Commonwealth subsidised residential aged care services from July this year.

It currently collects information on pressure injuries, use of physical restraint and unplanned weight loss.
