Queensland Government and ACCPA collaborate: Free incontinence training initiative

The Aged and Community Care Providers Association (ACCPA) has teamed up with the Queensland Government to offer free incontinence training for nurses, care workers, and job seekers in Queensland.

With nearly 71% of older Australians in residential aged care experiencing incontinence, enhancing the capabilities of healthcare workers in this area is crucial.

In a statement, ACCPA’s CEO, Tom Symondson, highlighted the significance of the program in improving the quality of life for older Australians affected by incontinence.

The initiative aims to address workforce shortages by providing comprehensive training in incontinence management, including assessment, care planning, and prevention strategies.

“Upskilling workers in this area will directly benefit older Australians whose quality of life and autonomy are affected by incontinence”

Developed in collaboration with TENA, a global leader in incontinence care, the program offers flexible learning options and digital badges to acknowledge participants’ credentials.

This micro-credentialing initiative aligns with the Queensland Government’s workforce strategy, aiming to support individuals seeking employment or wishing to upskill in the aged care sector.
