From 1 December 2020 it became mandatory for residential aged care providers who support NDIS participants to become registered under the NDIS and demonstrate compliance with the NDIS Practice Standards and Quality Indicators. These providers must also continue to meet the requirements of the Aged Care Quality Standards (ACQS).
It has been acknowledged, however, that ‘the two systems fail to “dovetail” together in a practical and viable way’. To assist our partner providers in facing the challenges of maintaining regulatory compliance, and to support them in continuously improving outcomes for consumers, MOA has developed a dual-aligned audit program based on its existing ACQS schedule. The new program focuses on integrating NDIS Practice Standard outcomes and indicators with the requirements of the ACQS to minimise the additional administrative burden for providers.
MOA continues to provide separate quality programs to enable providers to align with the ACQS and NDIS Practice Standards.
