Have your Say – Evaluation of Aged Care Quality Standards

Beng Poh

19 August 2021


Organized By

Council on the Ageing (COTA) Tasmania

An important opportunity to have your say about the Aged Care Quality Standards has arisen. There is a tight time frame, and the consultation will take place online.  COTA has registered concern about this approach and the potential it has for limiting participation.

To register for the focus group

  • Focus group 01 – Thursday, 19 August 2021, 2:00 – 3:00 pm AEST
  • Focus group 02 – Friday, 20 August 2021, 11:00 – 12:00 pm AEST
  • Focus group 03 – Monday, 23 August 2021, 3:00 – 4:00 pm AEST

The Department of Health has commissioned KPMG to undertake the evaluation. KPMG is inviting the following stakeholders to participate:

  • Consumers, family members, carers or representatives of a consumer
  • Consumer peak bodies
  • Aged care service providers
  • Aged care workers/professionals

The survey asks about the Quality Standards, their implementation, and outcomes from their introduction and takes about 20 minutes to complete.

To complete the survey by midnight (AEST) on 3 September

If you or someone you know, would like assistance to register for either the survey or the focus group please call the COTA Tasmania office on 6231 3265.
