Expansion of quality indicators in residential aged care and to in-home aged care

Expanding the QI Program

The QI Program requires residential aged care providers to report on crucial areas of care to support quality improvement and improved health outcomes for older Australians.

We have been engaging with older Australians, aged care providers and peak organisations to expand the QI Program to include:

  • an additional 4 quality indicators for residential aged care
  • up to 5 quality indicators for in-home aged care
  • consumer experience and quality of life measures for residential and in-home aged care.
