The department has engaged PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) to help develop two new quality indicators (QIs):
- falls and fractures
- medication management.
Aged care providers, consumers and their representatives, experts and peak bodies are all invited to complete the online survey about the two new QIs, as well as providing feedback on the existing indicators: pressure injuries, use of physical restraint and unplanned weight loss.
The online survey is open until 5 December 2019.
As well as this online survey, the QI development process includes:
- an evidence-based literature review
- face-to-face sector and expert consultation, and
- piloting the new indicators, which is expected to occur in the first quarter of 2020.
Contact AgedCareQI@au.pwc.com for more information, or to register your interest in the pilot.
