The first series will be held on August 4th at 11am and will be focusing on the following topics:
What makes a good handover report
We know from feedback that what makes nursing staff stressed and upset about their work patterns is having to finish late, but often it is because they want to give a good handover and ensure they get it right. Understanding exactly what makes a good report is crucial in removing this stress, Liz gives her take on what makes a good handover report.
Tips for having difficult conversations
Sharing bad news or difficult information with residents and their families can be conversations that nurses find challenging at times. Liz shares her tips for planning for and having these tough conversations.
Wellbeing of your residents
Improving the wellbeing of older people living in our aged care facilities, as well as the wellbeing of the staff who care for them, is a major part of ensuring we have happy residents, happy staff and happy families.
