Palliative and Supportive Care Education (PaSCE) are pleased to announce the launch of the Advance Care Planning for Residential Aged Care Workshops for 2021. These workshops are available to all staff in residential aged care facilities and provide tailored education for these staff to increase organisational advance care planning (ACP) knowledge. 

The implementation of ACP practices within residential aged care facilities promotes compliance to the Aged Care Quality Standards (2019) Standards 1, 2 and 3 and the National Safety and Quality Health Service Standards, ‘Partnering with consumers’ and ‘Comprehensive care’. 

Register yourself and team members into one or more of the appropriate workshops to grow your successful ACP practice.

Overview

This session will build on the expertise, and care already delivered by the Aged Care sector and will provide the knowledge and tools to further ACP practice. 

This workshop supports the practitioner to meet the delivery of person-centred care, dignity and avoidance of suffering as expected by community.

“Community expectation of person-centred health care, self- determination, dignity and the avoidance of suffering, have focused attention on advance care planning. Nationally, The Palliative Care Strategy and The National Framework for Advance Care Directives, prioritise advance care planning and advance care directives. “ *
