Overview:

This insightful webinar has been specifically designed to assist home care providers providing end-of-life care to clients.

The webinar is complimented by a suite of free resources, produced by the national caring@home project, that can be used to promote quality, person-centred end-of-life care to people who wish to be cared for and to die at home if possible.

The resources are applicable Australia-wide for community services, health care professionals and carers to support carers to help manage breakthrough symptoms safely using subcutaneous medicines.

The resources will help organisations to meet requirements under the new Aged Care Quality Standards and Charter of Aged Care Rights.

At the conclusion of the webinar participants will:

  • Gain a greater understanding of importance of providing end-of-life care to clients on Level 3 and Level 4 packages who are likely to die in the near future
  • Understand how to access and use the caring@home resources and recognise how they can benefit clients and their carers
  • Be able to use the caring@home resources to meet the requirements of the Aged Care Quality Standards and Charter of Aged Care Rights
  • Understand how to implement the caring@home resources into current practice to promote quality, person-centred end-of-life care to people who wish to be cared for and to die at home if possible

This webinar will be of interest to Operational Managers, Quality Managers, Care Managers, and Nursing staff overseeing care and service delivery through home care package services.
