What you need to know about ACC
ACC is a system unique to New Zealand and this session will provide an overview of the services that ACC provide for those injured in accidents with specific focus on those working in the Aged Care industry. It will cover what ACC does and the support it provides, as well as how to make a claim and the steps that you need to take, either as an injured person or as someone supporting an injured person. We will also introduce a new tool developed to reduce falls amongst the elderly, best practice regarding returning to work after an injury and how to keep track of your claims on line. We will also answer the questions you have raised about ACC services.

ACC have kindly put together an ACC information pack for RN’s to review pre-workshop. After reviewing this they are happy to take any questions via email before the workshop to prepare answers for you, if you wish to ask please send it through to
