*** New Session Added ***

Due to popular demand, a fourth Conversations that Matter: Duty of Care vs Dignity of Risk session has been added on Thursday 21 May 2020 from 9am-10:30am.

NB: This training is designed for employees who work for and with Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP) funded services and organisations.

Struggling to balance your duty of care with the consumers dignity of risk?

The Aged Care Quality Standards focus on consumer dignity and choice, but what happens if the choice is an unsafe one? Dignity of risk is the concept of allowing a person the right (dignity) to take reasonable risk, and impeding this right can suffocate personal growth, self-esteem and quality of life (Ibrahim & Davis 2013).

As a CHSP service provider or volunteer this level of responsibility can feel like a minefield, especially when traversing the new Aged Care Quality Standards.

In these free 90-minute online workshops you will join in conversation to further understand the concepts of dignity of risk and duty of care. Please register for your preferred workshop, however please note numbers are limited. If you are new to online learning, we will support you.

What will you takeaway from this session?

  • Unpack the new Aged Care Quality Standards with a focus on Standard 1.
  • Explore the place of policies and procedures in your organisations to provide direction.
  • Participate in a case study to embed the concepts we discuss.

You can join the group remotely using Zoom Video Conferencing. Details on how to join the Zoom Video Conferencing session will be distributed closer to the date. Please refer to the guide on how to join and participate in a TasCOSS training session online using Zoom for more information.
