The ABC of BOC- Working with older adults with complex care needs who display behaviours of concern

Most of us are committed to the principles of delivering person centred care. Often times, though, our skills, knowledge and resolve are seriously challenged when we are working with older complex care recipients who display behaviours of concern. There are times too, when patients, clients and residents demonstrate behaviours that are so concerning or challenging that they impede our actually ability to provide effective person centred care.. 

Highly regarded facilitator, Dr Alice Rota-Bartelink, brings you this practical workshop that is designed  to provide a vibrant, but strictly confidential, discussion forum for professionals willing to discuss de-identified case and to learn with and from their peers in a supportive and relaxed environment.

Qualitas Australasian Productive Series Conference

The Australasian Productive Series is adapted from the highly successful model used internationally.

The Australasian Productive Series supports health service teams to redesign and streamline the way they manage and work. The focus in on achieving significant and lasting improvements and predominantly in improving care quality while reducing costs and contributing time saved back where it belongs – in patient care.

The Australasian Productive Series draws on the efficiency techniques first seen in innovations in manufacturing in the early 70’s and later the safety initiatives adopted in the aviation industry.

As with all successful change programs, the key to the success of the Australian Productive Series has been shown to be executive sponsorship in collaboration with empowered front line teams who are willing to examine their practice and consider how that might make positive changes to the way their work. The approach is one of continuous improvement which leads to improved staff morale, a productive and collaborative work culture and genuine savings in terms of reduced costs and less waste of time and resources.

Respecting our Loved One's Wishes: Innovations in the Delivery of Home and Community Care for Older People

Health, community and aged care professionals are frequently faced with the dilemma of how to care for older people while respecting their wishes and preserving their mobility and independence. Increasingly, when offered a choice, many older people prefer to remain in their home for the remainder of their life. Yet, in the context of the whole family, the availability and myriad of services and service providers, somehow enacting that decision sometimes comes with a whirlpool of complexities.
 
This practical two day seminar is designed to examine changes in the way that healthcare is delivered to older Australians with a particular focus on person and family centred models of service and care delivery.

Working Effectively with People Experiencing Family Estrangement - A practical approach for health & welfare professionals

Health professionals regularly encounter people who are estranged from one or more family members.  Family estrangement often results in significant grief responses as well as decreased social functioning. While estrangement impacts families across the lifecycle, there is some evidence that older people, those experiencing periods of crisis and those nearing the end of life might experience an increased desire to reconcile with their estranged relative or at least learn to live with the loss of the ‘family ideal’.  This practical workshop is designed to assist you to help people living with family estrangement.
