The work that personal care attendants (PCAs), assistants in nursing (AINs), or similar level employees do is crucial to the care that older adults receive, and it, therefore, requires comprehensive skills. Attending this conference will strengthen PCAs’ and AINs’ understanding of:
Personal care attendants (PCAs), assistants in nursing (AINs), and other similar employees now represent the majority of the residential and community aged care workforce. As there are now few registered and enrolled nurses working in aged care, the vast scope of the work of PCAs and AINs is increasing. This demands a greater emphasis on ongoing training and education. There is a timely need to offer formal ongoing education to PCAs and AINs so as they are best placed to meet the comprehensive care needs of this vulnerable population and reduce harm.
The purpose of this conference is to provide PCAs, AINs, and similar staff who work in residential aged care or community settings an opportunity to improve their knowledge and skills relating to the comprehensive care of older adults.
