The Australian institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW) Annual Report 2019-2020, released today, highlights the latest results for the fifth quarter of the National Aged Care Mandatory Quality Indicator Program (QI Program) released in December 2020 – Residential Aged Care Quality Indicators—July to September 2020 .
Quality indicators measure aspects of service provision that contribute to the quality of care given by residential aged care services. Since 1 July 2019, Australian Government-subsidised residential aged care providers have been required, under the National Aged Care Mandatory Quality Indicator Program (QI Program), to collect and report on three quality indicators:
- Pressure injuries
- Use of physical restraint
- Unplanned weight loss.
