Talking with Relatives in Aged Care

  • : Melbourne VIC 3000
Course Overview

 

In this module, you will explore the challenges of communicating with the relatives and carers of people, including residents, who receive aged care.

Topics
  • Conducting formal communication with a relative
  • Communicating with relatives who may not be confident in speaking English
  • Defusing difficult situations
  • Scenarios to review your learning and much, much more ...
Learning Outcomes
  • Help and encourage the relatives of those in your care to better communicate with you.
  • Be able to conduct a conversation with relatives that meets both party’s needs - yours and theirs.
  • Summarise a conversation you have with a relative of a person in your care.
Target Audience

 

All staff who work in Residential Aged Care including those that are commencing at any level.

Validation of learning:
  • Attend in-house or external training on topics such as communication techniques, unconscious bias or cultural diversity; and
  • Read any relevant policies and procedures on this topic that apply to your workplace.
  • Rather than waiting for a relative to initiate a chat, start a conversation with them about a non-urgent issue, for example, what they did on the weekend, or how things are going for them at the moment. Write down your reflections in your professional portfolio.
  • Design a 'Hint Sheet' for new staff members, with five key things for them to take on board when they talk with relatives in aged care. Dot points will work well here.
