Diversity and wellness principles are explicitly and implicitly referenced throughout the Aged Care Quality Standards. Therefore, there is a need for service providers to understand how to address diversity and wellness across all aspects of the standards.
Originally developed as a 1.5 hour webinar, the recorded session has been divided into individual videos for each standard. An introduction to intersectionality, wellness and reablement is provided in the first video and case study examples highlight the relevant diversity and wellness elements and standard requirements for each video.
It is highly advised that quality managers and those responsible for leading and implementing the standards and quality review process participate. Direct care and other CHSP staff will also benefit from the sessions as it uses case studies to highlight how diversity and wellness principles need to be considered and addressed at all levels of the organisation.
