GP aged care standards launched for the first time

The RACGP has released its first ever GP standards for residential aged care facilities (RACFs), describing them as a ‘timely response’ to the findings of the Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety.

According to the college, the new standards aim ‘to address the many challenges GPs face when delivering care in RACFs’.

‘The Standards … do not seek to replace existing requirements for accreditation against the Aged Care Quality Standards as set by the Department of Health,’ the authors wrote.

‘They are voluntary and highlight the inextricable link between the GP and the RACF, and demonstrate how the GP and broader RACF care team are connected to RACF systems and its infrastructure.’
