As the aged care sector continues its journey of reform and change, providers are firmly focused on delivering better outcomes for those receiving care now and into the future.
A central element in achieving this goal is having an effective approach to tackle workforce challenges which will help to create a positive workforce culture, control costs, and improve the quality, safety, and day to day operations for its staff, residents and clients.
Additionally, the introduction of the new Aged Care Quality Standards means there is a requirement for facilities to meet and demonstrate new levels of compliance as it relates to safety and quality systems and procedures. It is not enough to have a policy or procedure; facilities need to prove systematic delivery of information to workers and confirmation of their understanding and demonstrability of the procedure in practice that assists in measuring outcomes.
WorkPro can assist with a single platform to curate different onboarding, induction and compliance packages for workers. Facilities have the option to access a library of pre-built learning modules supplemented with the option to upload, deliver and host custom content including standard operating procedures and site information.
The aggregation of key background and probity checks and the ability to upload and monitor important accreditations, allows facilities to minimise manual administer yet implementing a robust program against the new standards.
