Marise Goddard-Jones and Leslie Gevers are the Directors and Principal Consultants for GGJ Consultants. Marise is a Registered Nurse and expert in clinical governance and practice, and support procedures as well as corporate procedures. Leslie, a Social Worker and a graduate in Psychology and Information Technology, is expert in management systems, corporate procedures, data analysis and research. Both directors have highly developed organisational and writing skills.
Both consultants have well over 20 years’ experience in residential aged care and home care including many years as aged care assessors. We have been developing policies and procedures templates since 1988, when we developed the first version of a Home and Community Care Policies and Procedures Manual. This was utilised throughout Australia. We have since developed the Home Care Standards for the Australian Government, which have formed the basis of the new Aged Care Quality Standards. The previous Home Care Standard on Effective Management and numerous other outcomes from the Home Care Standards have been fully incorporated into the new Standards.
Through our work on Standards and policies and procedures we have a comprehensive understanding of the Aged Care Quality Standards and can guarantee that our policies and procedures are accessible to all staff, are easy to understand and will be easy to maintain up to date.
