Quality Jobs and Quality Care Project

The project is funded by the Australian Government Department of Health under the Aged Care Service Improvement and Healthy Ageing Grants Fund

About the Project

The Quality Jobs Quality Care in Aged Care project will develop innovative workplace tools and models to inform the practical, evidence-based implementation of improved work practice. In doing so, it will assist services to simultaneously improve job quality and the quality of services experienced by older Australians.

Firstly it will develop practical Benchmarks to enable the evaluation of job and service quality.

Secondly, the project will trial and evaluate six workplace interventions with three key industry partners. Our aged care provider partners, Brightwater Care, HammondCare and Helping Hand, will each implement two interventions to improve job and service quality.

Thirdly the project will disseminate innovative tools and models that practically illustrate and support changes in workplace practice including how they can be evaluated.
