The Public Sector Residential Aged Care (PSRAC) Leadership Committee (the Committee) was formed in 2012 as an industry advisory body aimed at quality improvement in PSRACS, and in the ensuing years has broadened its focus to include additional priorities including workforce development and planning, improving the image of aged care nursing as a career, and mentorship of young and emerging nurse leaders.
The Committee comprises Executive Directors of Nursing (DON) with overall responsibility for the management of residential aged care within Victorian public health services. The Executive Directors of Nursing on the Committee are nominated representatives from the three public sector DON state-wide committees; these being the metropolitan, regional and small rural DON committees.
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.
The PSRAC Leadership Committee will be running 5 free Better Care Better ACFI training workshops for the public sector residential aged care workforce.
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 you how new evidence based clinical assessment toolkit can help provide great care for residents and ensure your ACFI claims are appropriate, accurate and matched to resident care needs.
The training will be facilitated by a practicing physiotherapist and two lead trainers from Applied Aged Care Solutions who specialise in BCBA training.
