Improving Aged Care Board Governance
Governance Evaluator is a highly effective solution for strong governance in the aged care sector. Our ongoing engagement with key sector partners and experts bring the latest industry and aged care consumer knowledge from a global, Australia wide and invaluable local hands-on perspective.
Our partnership with Leading Age Services Australia (LASA) has enabled us to work with exceptional aged care sector experts from across Australia and locally to develop and continuously enhance the Governance Evaluator Aged Care content.
This engagement has ensured the clinical governance module complements the Australian Aged Care Quality Association (AAQCA) Frameworks and upholds the principles of Consumer‑Directed Care.
It has also ensured a keen focus on the areas where boards need to build their capabilities to responsibly and dynamically govern clinical care quality and safety in their services.
Governance Evaluator solutions reflect the specific needs of boards of aged care services to deliver strong governance.
“In a sector where clinical governance now assumes as much, if not more, importance than financial governance, aged-care boards need to be confident that the necessary checks and balances are constantly in place. The Governance Evaluator system is perfectly tailored to provide boards and individual directors with this assurance. I recommend its adoption”
