WELCOME TO THE QUALITY JOBS QUALITY CARE WEBSITE.
The Quality Jobs Quality Care Project was conducted over three years in a collaboration of researchers from three universities and partners from the aged care industry, funded by the Australian government. Its aim has been to develop innovative workplace tools, models and benchmarks to improve job quality and quality of services in aged care. The major focus has been on direct care workers, who provide 80% of frontline care in Australian aged care services.
The development of benchmarks, innovative workplace trials, and contemporary research evidence has led to the development of the Quality Jobs Quality Care Toolkit. This resource is designed to assist aged care employers and managers to make small changes to work practices which will improve both job quality for care workers and the care quality that older Australians receive. Webinars provide an introduction to the area of job and care quality, and explain how to use the Toolkit. Worksheets, practical how-to advice and real-life case studies are included to support you along the way.
