Standard seven: the new Aged Care Quality Standards

Posted 18 February 2019

Standard seven of the new Aged Care Quality Standards focuses on workforce planning.

Aged care providers need to create a workforce that is skilled and qualified to provide high-quality, safe and respectful services. The workforce needs to be recruited, trained, and supported to deliver care, with regular assessment, monitoring and performance reviews.

The VHA has developed resources to assist providers transitioning to these standards. To access these tools log onto the VHA WiRE portal at the link and click on the resources tab
