Transition Care Program Guidelines - 2011
The Transition Care Program Guidelines 2011 (the Guidelines) are an updated version of the Transition Care Program Guidelines 2005 which were developed by the Australian Government in consultation with all states and territories through the Transition Care Working Group.
The Transition Care Program Guidelines 2011 are a resource for the state and territory health departments, as the Approved Providers of Transition Care, as well as service providers, officers of the Department of Health and Ageing and other interested parties.
The Guidelines explain the Australian Government’s policy context and operational requirements for the Transition Care Program, including the clarification of responsibilities of the Approved Providers under the Aged Care Act 1997 and the Aged Care Principles which govern the operation of the Transition Care Program.
