The New Aged Care Quality Standards
Have you spent many hours of your time working on processes to meet changing Aged Care Quality Standards only to find out that you missed some critical aspects?
Would you be relieved to know that there is help available to meet ever-evolving aged care governance requirements so that you can get on with the job of providing care?
On the 1st of July 2019, aged care as we know it will look very different and unless you understand the difference, you are likely to find yourself doing the wrong thing really well, with your consumers paying a heavy price.
We are here to help you with the Pride Living ACQS Coaching and Support Plan.

Here’s a snapshot of recent events that are reshaping aged care quality and compliance
In response to this need, the Pride Living ACQS Coaching and Support Plan was launched on the 10th September 2018 and will run for 13 months. By subscribing to this plan and following our transition manual, you’ll be prepared and ready to meet these new standards by July 1, 2019.
These are the key areas where we will help you develop your compliance
|ACQS – Future||ACQS - Current|
|Consumer-focused with new key concepts introduced such as dignity of risk and cultural safety||Process driven|
|Organisational governance||This is a whole new standard|
|Clinical Governance will have a big focus. Board Room decisions will be reviewable||No board accountability|
|Best practice in clinical care is a base line requirement||Legislated practice is a minimum requirement|
|Open Disclosure practice is a minimum requirement||No equivalent|
|Choice vs risk - Risk Management||Risk avoidance|
|Clinicians demonstrate timely referrals to other organisations and health professionals||Timliness not critical|
|Anti-microbial stewardship – organisations are now expected to minimize infection related risks in two ways||Only expected to implement an effective infection control program|
