  • Webinar: Beyond the Standard: Understanding the Standard

    2020-09-09

    Wednesday 9 September, 9.30am-11.30 am via Zoom link

    REGISTER HERE FOR FREE

    Presented by Dana Lavenant
    Workforce & Industry Development Officer, ACSA

    Good care is not about ‘ticking boxes’: Compliance is only possible with understanding the life of the older person. Standard #1 is detailed and more complex than it looks. Participants explore the seven sub-elements, including identity, diversity, risk, safety and choice from the perspective of the older person. The unique investigative approach will enable the workforce to know the person, while responding in an individual way beyond the requirements of the standard.

    Learning Outcomes:

    • To understand New Aged Care Quality Standards 1-8 in relation to a person’s life
    • To explore Standard #1 in depth to expand their ideas and approach in supporting the needs of the Older Person
    • To identify strategies of how to work with the standards
