LASA’s Online Professional Development Program has been designed to meet the shifting needs of the age services industry and we are continually adding new education and programs to our schedule. The online delivery model presents a simulated classroom experience through the use of live video functionality. A virtual meeting room enables you to interact in real time with the facilitator and other participants providing valuable peer to peer learning and a fully supported experience. We have broken our courses down into short sessions to enable minimal interruption to your working day and make attendance easily accessible from any location in Australia. All participants are issued a certificate of attendance with CPD points upon completion. So, jump online and register now to expand your knowledge!

Workshop Overview:

The Australian National Aged Care Classification (AN-ACC) care funding model will replace the Aged Care Funding Instrument (ACFI) from 1 October 2022.

AN-ACC will provide more equitable care funding to providers that better matches resident funding with the costs of delivering care enabling a more efficient, transparent and sustainable system.

This workshop provides information on how AN-ACC will work.

We will go through funding calculation examples to help providers estimate their future funding levels in advance of the new AN-ACC care funding model commencing on 1 October 2022

Who should Attend: 

ACFI Teams – Coordinators, Officers. Facility Managers, RACF Consultants, Care Managers, RACF Executive Management Teams such as CFO’s, CEO’s and GM’s
