Assisting your decision-making regarding Home Care Package Expenditure and Excluded Items.

Workshop overview:

Interpreting legislation can be challenging, as guidelines require providers to make informed decisions for a personal-centred approach to care provision of older people. While the rules have not changed, the Aged Care Quality and Safety Commission is strengthening its focus on the ‘grey’ areas of expenditure. 

This interactive workshop explores the Inclusions & Exclusions Framework, unpacks examples across the domains, and offers a Q & A session addressing specific questions.  

Registered participants are encouraged to provide questions prior to the session and a Q & A documents will be provided to participants. 

The workshop is limited to 25 participants, to support greater exploration and discussion around inclusions & exclusions.

Home care managers, case managers, consumers
