CS&HISC forums on direct client care

Monday, May 19 2014

CS&HISC is holding a series of consultation forum with industry as part of the 'Improve Training Quality in Aged Care' project, funded by the Department of Social Services.

As part of this project CS&HISC will be looking at all sectors that closely align with Aged Care and fall under the Direct Client Care grouping which includes Home and Community Care, Allied Health Assistance, Disability, Leisure and Health, Mental Health and more general Community Services and Management.

CS&HISC is holding a series of workshops to consult with industry stakeholders on the changing requirements of workers in Aged Care and other Direct Client Care industries to identify new and emerging roles/tasks and associated skills and knowledge.

The information collected will build on existing Training Package review work, inform areas where new components for Training Packages should be developed and assist in the development of Companion Volumes to support updated Training Packages.
