The draft for the new Standards has been released, and is available now on the governments Ageing and Aged Care website.
You can access the draft here: Draft Aged Care Quality Standards
The Standards are expected to be implemented from 1 July 2018 with a 12-month transition period.
ACQA will be doing a full review of our tools and audits in line with the new Standards, and will implement a full program to support members in the transition.
More information to follow in coming weeks.
