NZACA Workshops

NZACA Workshops 2021

Workshops for Managers and Aspiring Leaders

The New Zealand Aged Care Association Education Trust is planning the next series workshops with a focus on the revised Health and Disability Sector Standards 2021.  The standards will be mandated and implemented from February 2022. There are significant changes to these standards and compliance will be a challenge for many facilities.

Our keynote presenter, Gillian Robinson will discuss how you can adjust policies and processes on your site to meet the new and revised standards.  Her presentation will also cover how to implement the necessary standards and what education staff will require to meet the standards. This will include governance and operational challenges.

Rhonda Sheriff, NZACA Clinical Advisor will present on Managing current staffing challenges that include staff shortages in ARC. With the borders closed, immigration challenges, pay anomalies and increasing workloads, now more than ever we are facing staffing difficulties in our sector. Let’s identify strategies that help mitigate risk in our sector and ensure safe care delivery to residents.
