The Dementia and Severe Behaviour Supplement (Australian aged care funding) can be used by aged care organisations in Australia to improve staff skills, and you can do this by enrolling in the Diploma of Dementia Care Leadership. This nationally recognised qualification is for leaders and those who are in roles that require leadership and who feel they need to learn how to be a better leader and to know more about modern dementia care.
McCarthy Learning has developed a Diploma of Dementia Care Leadership which is to be launched with our first intake this July 2014.
Let’s face it, most undergrad courses or entry level courses do not prepare you with adequate knowledge about dementia – most of you have probably learned what you know on-the-job.
Now is the time to consider a professional training program that is designed to be practical and give you the knowledge you need to be an excellent leader and have the most up-to-date knowledge of best practice dementia care.
The Dementia and Severe Behaviour Supplement provides $5,894.75 for each eligible resident. If your organisation is receiving this supplement for some of your residents suggest to your manager that they support you to improve your leadership skills by enrolling you in the Diploma of Dementia Care Leadership.
The course is delivered in six blocks of face-to-face learning for 3-5 days every two months for a year, with online learning and workplace projects.
Cost of the course this year is $7,000. Next year the cost will increase to our usual price of $9,000.
Offered in all capital cities of Australia.
