Description

Integrating a Spiritual Care Approach: the new Aged Care Quality Standards

This workshop will equip participants to be able to link the new Aged Care Quality Standards with spiritual care practices outlined in the National Guidelines for Spiritual Care in Aged Care. We will explore domains two and five; ‘relationships and connectedness’, and ‘enabling spiritual expression’, noting what to look for in program planning. We will also engage with examples of programs and practices to assess against our current practice. In this workshop, participants will:

  • Become familiar with the new standards and the intersection with the National Guidelines for Spiritual Care in Aged Care.
  • Engage with practice examples.
  • Build confidence in designing programs and activities that connect with what matters most to people you are supporting.
  • Participate in self-assessment/quality assurance processes for personal and team practice.

This workshop assumes some prior knowledge of spirituality and spiritual care and it is recommended that participants engage in a spiritual care orientation program prior. It is ideal for anyone involved in planning and implementing programs, services and supports for daily living, including health and wellbeing, lifestyle, and pastoral and spiritual care staff.
