As part of the Aged Care Quality and Safety Commission’s (ACQSC) process for accreditation under the new Aged Care Quality Standards (ACQS), a standardised set of seven questions are asked of each provider.
MOA supports our partner providers with the tools, and reporting, to provide the evidence required to answer each of these 7 questions on demand.
