The Aged Care sector faces challenges when managing and verifying the credentials of its workforce.
With part-time, full-time and casual staff to account for, it can be difficult for facilities to keep track of who has the necessary qualifications and licences to provide these crucial care services. It can lead to delays in hiring, unnecessary admin burden, and most concerning - the risk of unqualified individuals working in Aged Care.
A look at the Aged Care sector
The Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety report set out a clear vision for the future of Aged Care in Australia.
Aged Care providers are set to become more accountable for the compliance of all personal care workers. Standardised data collection and the ‘collect once, use many times’ principle have been identified as core solutions for maintaining portable, digital records for every care worker. We believe the success of this goal relies on simple and reliable systems to digitally track and manage staff records.
Cloud-based technology is now available to enhance Aged Care in Australia by connecting workers, training bodies and employers in a single collaborative hub. Going forward, embracing technology will be essential for meeting these heightened expectations on quality of care.
“How do you know that the workers delivering clinical care are qualified, competent, appropriately trained and supported to effectively perform their role?”
As an aged care facility, you need to have systems and processes in place to ensure that the staff delivering care are appropriately qualified, trained and equipped to deliver services in line with the consumer’s needs, goals and preferences. Aged care facilities need to ensure that staff are aware of and understand current relevant national clinical care guidance and can apply this. You are responsible for having systems in place to ensure staff are trained to recognise signs of decline or deterioration in mental, emotional, or physical function. Staff must be competent and appropriately supported to deliver quality care and services. You also need to have systems available to assess the capability of staff (and contractors) to identify any deficits and to ensure that staff are continuously improving their knowledge, skills and competencies.
