The Specialisation Verification Framework has been established in response to recommendation 30 of the Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety which stated that there should be verification to ensure ‘that the provider has proper grounds for making any representation of being able to provide specialised services for groups of people with diverse backgrounds and life experiences.’
Developed by Australian Healthcare Associates (AHA), the Framework seeks to address this recommendation, by embedding a focus on diversity in the aged care system and helping senior Australians to choose providers that meet their specific needs. Essentially, the framework sets out the conditions under which providers can promote their service to different communities on My Aged Care (for example culturally and linguistically diverse people, LGBTI, Veterans, etc).
This online session will introduce you to the new proposed specialisation verification framework for My Aged Care which commenced on the 27th June 2022. Included in the session are the key features of the framework, the two-tiered specialisation criteria, expectations of the verification and certification processes and discussions on what you can be doing to become a specialised provider.
