What is Ausmed Passport™?

The Ausmed Passport™ is a digital certificate for people working in aged care. A staff member can carry it with them from one employer to the next to evidence that they have completed mandatory training relevant to and recognised by the sector.

It's 100% free to both individuals and employers.


Why is this needed?

Repeated mandatory training cost the Australian aged care sector an estimated $8.02 million in 2018. This avoidable cost is expected to increase to $31.81 million by 2030.

Ausmed believes innovations like Ausmed Passport™ can help the healthcare sector overcome some of these significant workforce challenges ahead.

How were training modules in the Ausmed Passport™ chosen?

A needs assessment was conducted by Ausmed researchers, in consultation with an advisory committee made up of representatives from leading aged care providers across the country, to select training items that were:

  1. Of specific relevance to the core training needs of aged care staff of all levels and
  2. Most frequently assigned to staff by the aged care providers surveyed.
Needs assessment data inputs include:
  • Training alignment with the Aged Care Quality Standards criteria
  • Internal quality indicators (Ausmed App user evaluations)
  • Feedback interviews with current workers in the aged care industry
  • Feedback interviews with current Ausmed users
  • Quantitative data collected from de-identified aged care provider training plans and crosswalk analysis comparing reports from similar organisations
  • Findings from analysis of common compliance issues and high-risk regulatory issues in the aged care sector.

Ausmed Passport™ training modules will be reviewed annually by an education advisory committee.

The training will be reviewed annually against the aforementioned needs assessment criteria. We welcome any and all feedback on the Ausmed Passport™ initiative. Please click here to contact us.
