Managing in the Aged Care Spotlight

Hamilton Island
 
Outline

One of the key opportunities identified by the Royal Commission into the aged care sector is the importance of good management necessary to consistently meet the requirements of the quality and safety standards.

This Conference aims to provide you with knowledge and skill in critical areas of management in the aged care sector and the ongoing opportunity to continue your learning with our bespoke aged care managers course.

Workshop Objectives:

  • Understanding of what it means to be a manager in aged care and how to use your position to enhance the aged persons experience of the service.
  • Investigate the concepts of leadership, communication, performance management, clinical governance, and succession planning to enhance your performance and the performance of your team.
  • Explore the current funding models for aged care and review key accounting strategies – from profit and loss analysis to preventing fraud to maximise the dollars available for actual service delivery.
  • Review the Aged Care Quality Standards and the role of management in staff’s ability to delivery of same.

 

Elizabeth has been involved in education for over 30 years. Her experience includes teaching primary secondary, adult literacy, tutoring, executive professional development, coaching and developing high performing teams.

Over the last 10+ years, Elizabeth has focused on developing individual and teams across the health sector to achieve their potential through exploring the benefits of diversity in thinking preferences, managing for mutual outcomes and challenging the status quo.

Previous roles as a manager highlighted that too often staff are not engaged in the business and have significant misconceptions about the challenges facing the organisation. Communication to employees, particularly around change, is regularly not clearly articulated to those responsible for implementing the change – with resulting frustrations for both management and staff.

​Armed with the firm conviction that workplace training should always be directly linked to the organisation’s objectives, Elizabeth strives to develop and present quality, relevant and entertaining training with a clear focus on increasing capability, effectiveness and sustainability.
