Governance in Aged Care: Governing Through Change

Governing to provide quality care & positive outcomes for older Australians
Selling Fast

Positioning your organisation to successfully lead & govern through the complexities of change

Legislated changes from 1 December 2023 have strengthened provider governance responsibilities concerning the governing body, and have placed clear accountability on boards for the quality and safety of aged care.

Whilst aged care governing bodies don’t directly participate in service delivery, they have a critical responsibility to be well-informed of their requirements under the revised Aged Care Quality Standards. It is essential that they are able to work effectively with executives, staff and participants and have the structures in place to govern with the rights of the participant at the centre of care.

Bringing together experts, industry leaders and key stakeholders, The Council on The Ageing (COTA) Australia and The Hatchery’s Governance in Aged Care: Governing Through Change conference will address the complexities of governing through reform. Across two days, this conference will explore the new responsibilities of governing bodies and empower aged care leaders to implement robust governance practices and stay ahead of change.

How to ensure quality & safety through good clinical governance

Safe, quality care should be the primary focus of aged care providers, and whilst not all aged care staff and board members have a clinical background, clinical excellence is everyone’s responsibility. By establishing systems and processes for good clinical governance, with a culture focused on improving outcomes for participants, boards and executives can be confident to meet requirements of the revised quality standards and make informed decisions in the interests of older people.

This workshop will explore how to establish a quality-driven culture and strengthen clinical governance throughout the organisation to drive continuous improvement and improved quality of care and life for older people.

 

What you will takeaway

  • Improve your practical understanding of clinical governance & whole of organisational responsibility
  • Explore the responsibilities of leadership in building a culture of quality care from the top down
  • Develop practical strategies to engage your workforce with a whole of organisational approach to clinical governance that prioritises quality of care and continuous improvement
  • Understand your legal and regulatory requirements under the revised Aged Care Quality Standards
