Aged Care Law Monitor is a quarterly report that summarises key legal, regulatory and compliance changes that affect the aged care industry.
The current edition is available now at no charge for Aged Care Essentials subscribers.
The purpose of this report is to help aged care boards and leaders more effectively monitor the large number of laws, regulations, guidelines and codes that apply to aged care operations.
Aged Care Law Monitor is designed to be incorporated into an aged care facility’s board and executive reports and includes links to key reference material that will help you understand what your obligations are and how you can meet them.
Why did CompliSpace create Aged Care Law Monitor?
The pure scale of the legal and regulatory obligations facing Australian aged care facilities, as well as the pace of change, makes it very difficult for boards and executive teams to gain a simplified view of key changes and the actions that may be required to meet their compliance obligations.
Aged Care Law Monitor documents both recent and upcoming developments and includes sections for both national and state-specific information.
