The department has engaged PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) to assist in the development and pilot to trial the new QIs relating to:

  • medication management
  • falls and fractures

To ensure the pilot captures the views and experiences of residential aged care services nationally, the department would like to strongly encourage the following services to take part:

  • services operating in Queensland or remote areas
  • smaller services (less than 50 residential aged care places)
  • previous QI Program pilot participants
  • private (for profit) or state government services

Participation in the pilot is an opportunity for your service to trial and provide feedback on these indicators ahead of the implementation of the additional QIs from 1 July 2021.

The pilot will start in February 2020. Please register your interest by 27 January 2020.

Thank you to those services who have already submitted an expression of interest to participate in the pilot.
