Accreditation Standards Gap Analysis

AHP consultants are experienced managers and seasoned auditors: we know what to look for and where to find it. Comprehensive and insightful, our methodology identifies compliance gaps and provides detailed action plans with best-practice solutions to compliment your own quality system. We’re also available to provide hands-on support with implementing your improvement plan.

Your site analysis includes:

  • Unbiased and objective analysis of all 44 outcomes.
  • Special focus on outcomes with the highest rate of non-compliance.
  • Detailed reports and individually tailored action plans.
  • On-site support.

Our consultants are always happy to answer your questions, so please call us for more details.

Behaviour Management

The increasing prevalence of dementia is having a profound impact on residential care services…so it’s essential your team has the skills to meet this challenge.

Though expert advice is available from Psychogeriatricians and support services such as DBMAS, there are often substantial lead times to access these services and referrals are only managed on a case by case basis.

What if your care team had the skills to manage challenging situations and reduce the need for external referrals?

AHP’s approach empowers your team with simple techniques to manage real-world situations. Equipping your team with the skills to identify, manage and prevent escalating behaviour will help them maintain a harmonious environment…and that’s in everyone’s best interest.

AHP Behaviour Management Training includes:

  • Onsite Clinical Education: Our training modules cover a range of topics from basic information to complex pathophysiology.
  • Behaviour Management Training: Hands-on group training that focuses on the fundamental techniques of behaviour management.
  • Site-Specific Training: Understanding your team’s specific challenges is the key to providing them with real solutions. By spending time on the floor with them, we’re able to provide detailed strategies they can start using immediately.
