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!

This provides an understanding of what the Aged Care Quality Standards are and demystifies how they apply to residential care settings.

The program focuses on the key concepts of the standards, trends in which standards are regularly not being met and an introduction to the types of evidence that is required to show you are meeting requirements of the standards. An overview of SIRS and Restrictive Practices is also included ensuring further compliance with Standard 8.


Who should attend:

These information sessions are for employees of all levels within providers of residential care services, including frontline staff, new staff, managers and board members. They’ve been developed based on feedback received from the sector and will be particularly relevant to anyone new to the sector or seeking an introductory overview of the Quality Standards.
