Quality and efficiency of staff are significant contributors to a healthcare organisation's success. The NDIS Quality and Safeguard Commission has created a mandatory NDIS Code of Conduct for NDIS service providers/support workers that provide care to the client. It includes NDIS staff certifications.
The Code of Conduct is designed to ensure safe and ethical services and support are provided by support workers to promote the health, safety and wellbeing of the NDIS participants/clients. It aims towards the provision of support and services with care and skill, safely and competently. For special-needs participants, workers must be certified with specific skills to provide quality care. This includes providing support per relevant work health and safety requirements.
Records of certifications and training should be up-to-date, comprehensive, and sufficiently detailed to enable continuity of support. It ensures the participant’s choice and control. Storing staff details and certifications, keeping track of their expiration date and matching them with clients’ needs can become a daunting admin task. Comm.care helps you maintain employee records and best practices within the sector.
Centralise and manage all training certificates and skills:
