The Australian aged care sector is undergoing major reforms with a Royal Commission and the Aged Care (Single Quality Framework) Standards Act commencing from 1 July 2019. The changes affect Australia’s 2700 aged care providers and 366,000 staff.
Wound Innovations can help you transition to the new standards by providing consultations or advice to your staff for residents who have difficult wounds.
Wound Innovations can also tailor education programs to upskill your staff and demonstrate continuous improvement in pressure injury prevention and wound management. Clinical consultations can be provided at our clinic, in the home, your facility or via telehealth, and can be funded through eligible Home Care Packages and/or DVA Gold Card.
Our services have been developed to provide a complete, best practice solution that is backed by research and auditable documentation to assist in meeting the new standards.
Our program has demonstrated success and has been shown to reduce pressure injuries by 52%, reduce skin tears by 48%, empower staff, provide cost benefits and has been published in the International Wound Journal (Price et al., 2017).
