AGED CARE TRAINING PACKAGE

Parkinson’s Australia’s new Aged Care Training Package called Caring for People with Parkinson’s is now available nationally. 

 

It is designed to educate and inform all the staff of Residential Aged Care Facilities to improve the quality of care provided for residents living with Parkinson’s. 

 

The training package is evidence based, with clearly stated and measurable learning outcomes, while incorporating the principles of best practice in care and utilizes a person-centred approach.

 

Learning Outcomes

  1. Increase the awareness and knowledge of the signs, symptoms and treatments of Parkinson’s disease.

  2. Increase the understanding of the needs of someone living with Parkinson’s.

  3. Increase the capacity of staff in providing care for someone living with Parkinson’s.

 

The face-to-face training workshops, which are interactive and include a range of adult teaching/learning strategies, are facilitated by specialist educators with expertise in providing care for people with Parkinson’s.

This 6 hour online educational course is designed to help GPs address the issues of most GPs to enact their role to assess, diagnose, treat and manage the care of patients with this illness. The course caters for learners with different levels of knowledge and experience in this area, while also providing flexibility in the way it can be used.
