Home care quality indicators
Work to develop quality indicators for home care is well underway following consultations with consumers, home care service providers and the National Aged Care Alliance Quality Indicators Reference Group.
An initial suite of tools that measure goal attainment, consumer experience and quality of life were piloted with a nationally representative sample of Home Care Package service providers in early 2016.
National voluntary implementation of quality indicators for home care is currently targeted for 2018.
