The Public Sector Residential Aged Care (PSRAC) Leadership Committee is an initiative that brings together Executive Directors of Nursing to focus specifically on achieving high standards of evidence-based care in residential aged care public sector facilities across Victoria.
The aim of the Committee is to lead strategic, planned and sustainable approaches, to ensure safe high quality care for residents and help address the issues and concerns specific to the PSRAC sector.
This committee has identified a number of priorities including workforce; the image of aged care nursing; and mentorship.
The Committee and Applied Aged Care Solutions (AACS) have developed ten free onsite two-day Better Care Better ACFI (BCBA) training workshops.
The training targets enrolled/registered nurses that can lead change in services.
Training is designed for nurse managers, educators and other nursing staff accountable for resident assessment, care planning and ACFI co-ordination.
These workshops will show how a new evidence based clinical assessment toolkit can help provide great care for residents and ensure ACFI claims are appropriate, accurate and matched to resident care needs.
