Course overview

This training is essential for staff/volunteers to meet one of the four Commonwealth Home Services Programme (CHSP) training requirements. 

Are you just starting your home visits or have you been home visiting for a long time and want to review/refresh your practice? Either way, this session will assist you to make your home visits productive and safer.

Using realistic case scenarios and participant experiences we will explore and develop good practice policy, procedures and strategies which ensure care provider's physical and emotional safety when entering and working in service users' home.

Topics covered?

  • Identifying safety issues, determining when it is safe to visit, how to make it safer and what to do if the visit gets tricky
  • Legal and ethical responsibilities of staff and volunteers
  • WHS and Duty of Care
  • Good risk assessment practice and tactics to ensure physical safety during home visiting - hazardous substances, manual handling, environment, threat of violence and substance abuse
