New education workshops available in 2020
The Commission has made changes to its program of courses and workshops to support the new Aged Care Quality Standards and provide the best possible education opportunities for providers.
Taking into account feedback following the ‘Getting to know the Standards’ information sessions and the ‘Preparing for the new Standards’ workshops conducted during 2018 and 2019, the Commission will be launching a new workshop series ‘Assessing the Standards’ in early 2020. These workshops will replace the former 'understanding accreditation' and 'quality review' workshops.
The new ‘Assessing the Standards’ workshops will focus on helping providers to understand the accreditation or quality review process, how to be prepared for these processes and how to use the self-assessment tools to gather and analyse evidence. The workshops will engage participants in discussion and analysis of both detailed case studies and specific issues they are currently facing within their service(s).
