    • 10:35 AM Retirement Village & Aged Care Facility Contracts

      Negotiation of retirement village and aged care facility contracts can be complex and practitioners need to be aware of the legislative framework and contextual issues that arise in this area in order to properly advise their clients.

      This seminar will examine the requirements and help you navigate the key areas. Topics covered will include:

      • pre-contractual disclosure
      • residents' rights
      • content of retirement village and aged care facility contracts
      • understanding and negotiating ingoing contributions and exit fees

      Presenters:

      • Rowdy Johnson, Lawyer, Moores
      • Andrew Sudholz, Practice Leader, Moores

      Compliance Area: Professional Skills

    • 11:35 AM Morning Tea & Light Lunch
    • 12:00 PM Update on Recent Changes to the Aged Care Act

      There is a new single set of quality standards applicable across aged care service types. These new standards require providers to demonstrate: that each consumer is supported to exercise choice and independence; a service environment that enables consumers to move freely indoors and outdoors; ongoing assessment and planning with consumers; and, where clinical care is provided, a clinical governance framework that includes minimising use of restraint.

      The Quality of Care Amendment (Minimising the Use of Restraints) Principles 2019 will impose obligations on providers that include ensuring that an assessment is carried out by a health practitioner who has concluded that restraint is required and that the reasons for the restraint and any alternatives to restraint that have been used are documented in the resident’s care and services plan.

      From 1 July 2019, it has been mandatory for residential aged care service providers to provide data on three quality indicators, including use of physical restraint, to the Department of Health.

      Discover your legal obligations and gain unique insights to service your clients better.
