National Aged Care Quality Indicator

The Australian Government has introduced the National Aged Care Quality Indicator Program to provide older people and their families with useful information about the quality of Australian aged care homes.

The voluntary program allows the aged care sector to measure and record outcomes and services, and makes this information accessible to the public.


By signing up to the program, aged care providers demonstrate they are committed to monitoring and improving quality standards.

The three quality indicators introduced by the program are;

  • Pressure injuries
  • Use of physical restraint
  • Unplanned weight loss

The Program plans to develop further quality indicators over time, drawing on the experiences of older people and aged care homes.
