Effective Complaints Management for Aged Care Service Providers
68 Market St, Sydney NSW 2000, Australia
New South Wales
On 1st July 2019, the new Australian Aged Care Quality Standards came into force. These require Aged Care Service Providers to demonstrate they:
encourage consumers to give feedback on the care and services they receive
have effective methods of managing consumer complaints and responding to feedback
take appropriate action to resolve complaints, using open disclosure when things go wrong
monitor and review feedback and complaints
use complaints and feedback to improve care and service quality
have established effective organisation-wide systems and governance
With a strong focus on transparency, openness and taking effective action, it's essential that Aged Care Service Providers can demonstrate a positive organisational culture that welcomes complaints. Every piece of consumer feedback should be seen as an opportunity to learn and improve service and care quality.
This intensive one day masterclass helps Aged Care Service Providers understand what's required to implement world-class complaints management in their organisations.
