ACCPA is providing support and specialist assistance to deliver one-day Capacity Building Workshops to aged care and home care providers.
The Capacity Building Workshops are designed for providers of aged care and home care in regional, rural, and remote communities, including organisations delivering care and services to First Nations communities.
These workshops involve sector engagement and education activities that build approved provider capacity and capability, which are of common concern for providers. Engage with providers to understand local issues and challenges relating to the following topics below, as well as understanding local networks.
Workshop topics include:
Strategy, Collaboration, Communication:
- Aged Care Reforms
- SIRS – Serious Incident Reporting Scheme
- Regional topics of concern, identified through engagement with pre-workshop survey.
- Current support available, including but not limited to grant access, trusted Indigenous facilitators / care funding program.
- Presentations informed by the DoHAC; SDAP, Business advisory, Workforce advisory, Rural locum assistance program, ACQSC supports
The workshops are designed to address specific regional challenges and to support providers to adapt their approach to day-to-day organisational activities, with a focus on best practice and excellence in consumer and resident outcomes.
Other key benefits include:
- Improvement approach to provider service delivery
- Having a dedicated forum for providers to discuss regional issues in aged care
- Building and strengthening provider networks
- Exploring culturally appropriate methods and approaches
The workshops will draw on the success factors derived from the previous workshops facilitated by ACCPA. A later-stage evaluation process will help to inform the DoHAC to continue to build provider capacity into the future.
