Why do this course?

La Trobe University is offering workshops on Comprehensive Health Assessment of the Older Person (CHAOP) for nurses from all healthcare sectors, who provide care to older people.  Held at your aged care facility or health service, the workshops involve three days of interactive, hands-on skills development, aided by simulation mannequins, and includes eight modules covering: clinical reasoning, general assessment, musculoskeletal, cognitive, perceptual, psychosocial, nutritional, cardiovascular and respiratory assessment and communication of assessment.   

 

All participants will receive a comprehensive resource manual which includes the eight health assessment modules, links to other resources and a copy of all the presentation slides.

 

Our facilitators are nurse educators who have excellent clinical experience in a range of health care settings. They are also experienced in teaching comprehensive health assessment to nurses across the health sector. One of our facilitators will come fully equipped to your facility or aged care service to deliver these workshops.  Alternatively, La Trobe can assist with providing a venue.

 

The fee per person is from $750 (inc GST), depending on your location, and workshops are limited to 20 participants to optimise the learning.
