Training program for care workers launched

Published

A new evidence-based education package developed by La Trobe University aims to fill a training gap for personal care workers in the residential aged care sector.

The education and training package aims to support residential aged care personal care workers (PCWs) and personal care assistants (PCAs) to recognise changes in residents’ health and report it to the appropriate person in the facility.

The eight-module interactive program has been developed by the Australian Centre for Evidence Based Aged Care (ACEBAC) at La Trobe University and designed for delivery by a nurse working in the aged care facility.

ACEBAC director Deirdre Fetherstonhaugh said the 10-hour training program could be delivered to new workers or to existing staff as a refresher program.
