Why Attend

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:

  • How to speak up for the safety of the patients or residents

  • What vital signs mean
  • Manual handling dos and donts
  • What to do if a person becomes suddenly more confused
  • The importance of documentation

  • Tips for coping with aggressive behaviours and much, much more…
This conference is an opportunity to gain valuable professional development. It does not constitute practical, hands-on training, nor does it replace a formal qualification. Any PCA/AIN who attends this event must hold a Certificate III in Aged Care.

The Goal

Need for Program

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.

Purpose of Program

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.

Your learning outcomes:

Recognise, due to your knowledge of how the symptoms of delirium differ from those of dementia, a person who has become acutely confused
You will know what the results of vital signs readings mean, and what to do when the vital signs are abnormal
Be more confident and assertive when engaging in conversation with general practitioners, other staff, and relatives
Be more familiar with manual handling concepts and methods and use them to prevent injuries from occurring due to improper manual handling techniques
