The Australian Centre for Evidence Based Aged Care at La Trobe University has developed a suite of online training modules for frontline residential aged care workers.
The self-paced multi-modal package has been designed to fill knowledge and education gaps identified by the aged care royal commission and other ACEBAC research in the residential aged care workforce in:
- dementia care
- recognising and providing a palliative response to care
- oral hygiene and links to health and wellbeing.
It targets nurses, personal care workers and allied health staff working with aged care residents but is suitable for everyone working in residential aged care.
