New videos released: Aged Care Quality Standards

Over the past 12 months, the public age care sector has been preparing for the transition to the new single set of Aged Care Quality Standards, effective from 1 July.

To support public hospitals delivering residential aged care support their frontline staff transition to the new standards, the VHA has developed a series of educational videos that align with each standard along with accompanying posters aimed at raising staff awareness of the changes, building understanding of the new standards and keeping the new standards front of mind across the organisation.

The videos can be accessed here and the posters will be available on WiRE soon.

In late 2018 the VHA also released a suite of tools and resources including a board pack, guidance resource and organisational self-assessment monitoring tool aimed at supporting services align their align their systems with the new standards and identify and address any gaps in their practice.

These tools can be accessed on the VHA member portal WiRE here.
