Meaningful Ageing Australia has launched two new e-learning modules to support people working in aged care to discuss spirituality with clients.
“Entering a conversation about spirituality may feel uncomfortable and daunting for people working in aged care,” CEO Ilsa Hampton said.
“Some may fear they lack the knowledge to discuss spirituality, or worry that they could say the wrong thing or offend the person they are caring for. These fears are not uncommon and can be overcome.”
The two new e-modules are based on its popular face-to-face training, Spiritual Care an Integral Part of Caring and ConnecTo Spiritual Screening Tool.
The e-modules were developed in consultation with member organisations and trialled by staff at nine aged care services who work in a range of roles including lifestyle and leisure, area managers, personal care, administration, and allied health.
Meaningful Ageing Australia member organisation, Bethanie, will host the launch of the two new e-modules on Monday 5 November in Perth.
The e-modules are available free to Meaningful Ageing members in SCORM format, or via a web link.
