Understanding quality review course – for home care
Registrations are now open for our two flagship courses aimed at providing a comprehensive
overview of the aged care quality framework and assessment process related to home care quality
review and residential aged care re-accreditation.
These two-day face-to-face courses will provide you with practical tools and skills you can take
back to your organisation as well as providing an opportunity to network and learn from others.
These courses are presented by the Quality Agency’s Quality Surveyors who have current
experience in undertaking quality assessment in both residential and home care services.
