About this event

The changing home care landscape has an increased focus on the provision of health and clinical care supports. This requires approved providers to ensure that their home care service models include procedures for routine check-in with consumers about their health and with others involved in the provision of health and clinical care services.

🌟 Are you confident that your current non-clinical care routines involve regular and systematic checks on your client’s health and well-being?

🌟 Can you show evidence that your staff understand the importance of these regular health check-ins and consistently carry them out?

🌟 Do you want to be clear about the ‘scope of practice’ of your workforce when dealing with the health issues of older people?

The future in-home support program is expected to include a clinical care and specialised support service type with heightened responsibilities for on-going monitoring of consumer’s health care needs.  Are you sure that your current practices, which might not be clinically focused (now), will align with these new requirements? Evaluating and possibly enhancing your procedures now is essential to ensure you can meet these upcoming expectations and provide the best care for your clients.

🔥 Overview

Non-clinical staff must ensure that their care practices include regular and routine monitoring of consumers’ health and well-being. They also need effective mechanisms for referral to and engagement with clinical care providers. Failure to do so can jeopardise consumers’ well-being, especially those with health issues and complex care needs.

This training will equip you, as non-clinical staff, with the skills and knowledge to enhance ongoing monitoring of consumers by incorporating health check-ins into your care practices. You will learn how to ensure that your team understands the significance of regular health check-ins and how to implement them effectively to meet current and future requirements.

🚩 Learning Outcomes

By the end of this very interactive training session, you will learn:

  • Explain how conduct of health check-ins supports compliance with home care regulations and program guidelines.
  • Describe the components of a systematic approach for conduct of health check-ins.
  • Recognise how best practice conduct of health check-ins builds provider capability for clinical care and specialised support service delivery now and in the future.
  • Identify effective approaches for conduct of health check-ins.
  • Recognise the roles and responsibilities for staff conducting health check-ins.
  • Explain how to manage referral pathways for health check-ins and sub-contractors involved in conduct of health check-ins.

When it comes to online training, we know that staring into the “virtual classroom” can sometimes miss those moments that face-to-face events deliver. So, we are mixing things up. In a time of transformation in the sector, we want to make sure now, more than ever, that you are being supported. We will be focusing even more on interactive, immersive training sessions (think break-out rooms, cameras on (yes scary), opportunities to network, and of course maintaining the LPA way of tangible tools and resources).
