NDIS Add-On for the Policies and Procedures
The NDIS Add-on assists service providers delivering aged care and NDIS services to meet the requirements of the NDIS Practice Standards and Quality Indicators using information from their Aged Care Policies and Procedures that is relevant to the NDIS requirements along with additional NDIS specific information.
The Add-on avoids having a separate set of policies and procedures for aged care and another for the NDIS, when a majority of the information for aged care is applicable to the NDIS. It avoids the workload with having to update two sets of policies and procedures.
The NDIS Add-on includes:
- The NDIS Practice Standards and Quality Indicators for Module 1 of the Standards (as of November 2021)
- For each quality indicator, references to sections in the Aged Care Policies and Procedures that are relevant to meeting the requirements of the quality indicator
- Additional information specific to meeting the requirements of a quality indicator, where the Aged Care Policies and Procedures do not contain adequate information for meeting the indicator.
The Add-on does not include forms or other documents but some guidance regarding required documents is provided.
Note: At this point the Add-On only covers the Core Module of the NDIS Practice Standards. As the NDIA clarifies the requirements for Aged Care Services we will revise the documents to include additional requirements. We will also revise the Add-On in response to user feedback on gaps or areas of improvement identified by NDIS Auditors. Depending on the extent of changes they may involve additional fees for updates
