The Department of Health and Aged Care is developing a new approach to regulating aged care that will be people-centred and based on best practice principles, to ensure safe and quality aged care is delivered to older Australians.
They are consulting with older Australians, their families and carers, and the sector to participate and share ideas to develop a new approach to regulating aged care that will deliver the reforms identified by the Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety.
The Department of Health and Aged Care has just released Consultation Paper No.1 – A new model for regulating aged care, which provides a high-level overview of the new model. You’re invited to provide your views and feedback via Margaret.firstname.lastname@example.org
The consultation paper follows the February 2022 release of the Concepts for a new framework for regulating aged care concept paper, which was the first step in working with the community to develop a contemporary approach to care that places the needs and preferences of older Australians at its centre. The paper was supported by a webinar on 8 March 2022. Another webinar was held on 31 August 2022 regarding the new regulatory framework and the Support at Home program. The recording of this webinar will be available on the department’s Videos and webinars page and YouTube channel soon.
Further consultation papers will be released in the coming months to ensure older Australians, their families and carers, service providers and sector have the opportunity to ask questions and share feedback and insights on the new model.
