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!

The Aged Care Quality and Safety Commission is strengthening a focus on how providers are allowing home care package funds to be used. The rules have not changed, but there is increased scrutiny of ‘grey’ areas of expenditure. The Commission can direct providers to refund costs for purchases that are not permitted.

LASA presents a two hour training course that dives into the scope of the Home Care Package program to build a deeper understanding of excluded items and the purpose of Home Care Package funding flexibility.

Home Care Managers, Case Managers, Consumers

  • Understand the types of care and support services that should be included in a care plan
  • Learn why needs assessments and care goals are important to preparing a home care budget
