From 1 October the rules have changed regarding entry to residential aged care under AN-ACC Class 1 (palliative care). This means that providers now have two weeks from a resident’s entry to submit a Palliative Care Status form, whereas before now the form needed to be submitted upon entry.
Please access resources to support you in following the new process, including the:
- new palliative care status form
- guide for palliative care entry into aged care homes
- updated AN-ACC funding guide
- AN-ACC assessment pathways fact sheet.
Please visit Entering residential aged care for palliative care webpage to ensure you are complying with the new process.
