Who should attend
The course is designed for health professionals and other workers who provide assessment and care co-ordination for old people, people with disabilities, people with mental health issues and other vulnerable clients in the community
About the Workshop
Assessment and Care planning for old people and people with disabilities in remote, rural and Indigenous communities has been shown to be inconsistent. This one day workshop will build skills for those who undertake this important role and enhance appropriate care for these vulnerable and disadvantaged people.
The course provides an opportunity for interactive and interprofessional learning based around the use of case studies and other activities.
The course was developed in conjunction with the National Aging Research Institute (NARI) who are also conducting this course in rural regions of SE Australia.
At the end of this workshop the participants will be able to:
- Demonstrate the application of current policy and service context in your local area
- Demonstrate skills in critical thinking and reflective practice in applying care frameworks (cultural safety, person centred care, International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health ICF)
- Assess service delivery needs of a client and their family in a cross cultural context
- Identify goals of client and family for effective participation
- Communicate effectively with all appropriate people involved with a client
- Develop and write effective care plans in the context of a complex service system
- Implement and review a care plan and coordinate others involved in care provision
