Provide high level care and support in an aged care setting
Residents within the aged care sector have increasingly complex health care needs and higher acuity levels. This increases the level of support and care needs of residents. You'll gain additional skills to assess and identify the care needs of residents. Understanding the importance of risk factors and potential impact on a resident is a key component to this skill set, along with methods to minimize and monitor interventions. You'll also learn strategies to support residents' palliative care needs and medications competency.
This skill set is best suited for those working within the aged care or disability sectors.
This skill set has been developed to be delivered in several different ways providing flexibility for you depending on your current circumstances:
- Structured with individual organisation to meet workforce upskilling needs
- A blend of online learning supported by face to face workshops
