    As requested, we begin this year with a series of webinars on assessment for person centred care planning.

    Why?  Because the ACFI documents state the tools provided for funding may not be adequate for care, and generally that is correct.  This leaves nurses and organisations at risk, even if organisations have successfully been accredited.

    The program will include readings and copies of assessment tools where permitted by copyright laws. More than 6 CPD hours.

    Also included is a recommended  assessment process based on the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia requirements, through the new nursing standards.

    For further information call head office 039576 7844
