On the 1st of October 2022, the Australian Government provided an additional $3.9 billion through the Australian National Aged Care Classification (AN-ACC) funding model. The AN-ACC replaced the existing Aged Care Funding instrument (ACFI) model. Associated with AN-ACC case mix model, each residential aged care facility will have its own care minute target reflecting the needs of the consumer. Join our clinical care consultant, Nigel McGothigan who has been involved with AN-ACC from the beginning and has supported providers in the transition from ACFI to AN-ACC. Offering a comprehensive understanding of the AN-ACC clinical practices and the clinal process that should be adapted. This program will discuss the implications of the new AN-ACC model on clinical governance frameworks, clinical assessment and best practice protocols. The program will discuss areas of focus for clinical management, registered nurses, and care staff during the transition period and the considerations that should be made during the change. AN-ACC will also change the focus of care teams from being funding generators in ACFI to focusing on clinical care outcomes and assessment.
The session is designed to inform and assist ACFI Coordinators, ACFI personnel and Clinical Managers in the transition. Offering support, advice and handy tips to manage the leap from ACFI to AN-ACC practically without burden.
