Course Overview

Care workers currently make up the majority of the healthcare workforce in Australia, however, their positions are not currently regulated by a formal regulatory body. For this reason, there can be issues around knowing where their scope of practice should begin and end. This Ausmed Training Module seeks to guide care worker’s in recognising what is and isn’t in their scope of practice.

  • Why is knowing your scope of practice important?
  • How do you know if something is outside of your scope of practice?
Learning Outcomes
  • Define scope of practice.
  • Understand a care worker’s scope of practice.
  • Identify activities that fall outside a care worker’s scope of practice.
Target Audience

All care work staff in any healthcare setting, including residential aged care, home care and disability care.
