To complement the delivery of our face-to-face education programs, the Commission is currently developing a new, innovative, online Aged Care Learning Information Solution – Alis. It will be launched early next year.
Alis will initially provide modules focusing on the Aged Care Quality Standards. The content will expand over time to support all types of aged care service providers to:
- demonstrate performance against the Aged Care Quality Standards;
- deliver safe and quality care and services; and
- demonstrate tangible positive outcomes for consumers.
The content will easily be accessible from any PC, laptop, tablet or phone device with an internet connection.
All Commonwealth-funded aged care service providers will be offered up to four free registrations for each service location. These free registrations will be available up until March 2021 with the opportunity to renew or purchase more registrations to support your organisation’s ongoing professional development.
How to ‘opt-in’ to Alis
All approved provider contacts will have received an email invitation to register with Alis. This email included instructions on how to accept your four free registrations for your service(s) and how to nominate a service level contact as the administrator.
If you are the administrator for your service, you will be granted access to the administrator’s dashboard and reporting functions. Here you will have access to real time data on your staff’s engagement and completion of the modules and be able to compare this with the Australia-wide data.
The service administrator will also be able to register additional users in the system. This will be capped at four free registrations unless your organisation has purchased additional licenses.
If you are yet to submit your expression of interest form for Alis, please email the following details to email@example.com.

What can we learn from Alis?
Our first program is focused on the Aged Care Quality Standards and takes the content from the guidance and turns it into an online interactive learning experience.
Upon completion of the Aged Care Quality Standards program, you will:
- understand the intent and application of the Aged Care Quality Standards;
- understand some of the key concepts and what they mean in practice; and
- be able to take steps to prepare your organisation for quality assessment against the Standards.
There are four sections in the program made up of a total of 15 short modules, as follows.
1. Getting to know the Standards
This section contains one module. We recommend you start with this module as it will provide you with an overview of the Aged Care Quality Standards and context for the rest of the program.
2. Aged Care Quality Standards
This section has eight modules, one for each Standard. You can choose which module you would like to start first, and you are not required to do these in any particular order. This provides you with flexibility as you might only want to do the Standards that are applicable to your aged care service type.
3. Key concepts
This section contains six modules. Each module focuses on a key concept in the Aged Care Quality Standards including:
- Cultural safety
- Dignity of risk
- Open disclosure
- Minimising the use of restraint
- Antimicrobial stewardship
- Consumer engagement and partnering
These modules provide you with quick access to the key concepts when you need them. This content is also included in the relevant Standards module.
4. Next steps
This section contains one module. This module supports you to complete a self-assessment and explains how this links to continuous improvement.
