Background Paper 7: Legislative Framework for Aged Care Quality and Safety Regulation, summarises the key aspects and complexities of the current regulation of quality and safety in aged care.

The paper addresses a number of issues including:

• the responsibilities of approved providers, including those in relation to quality of care, user rights and accountability
• accreditation and quality review processes
• enforcement and sanctions
• complaints processes
• advocacy and community visitors.
