Professional Development Program and Resources

iNotice logoiNotice is a free professional development program created for use by Aged Care Community Workers. It assists to heighten awareness of a variety of signs and symptoms that may be linked to a person’s medication management in a home environment. It supports Aged Care Community Workers to work effectively with a heightened awareness of safe medication management within their current scope of practice. It also provides care coordinators with additional knowledge and skills for information sharing with the person's care team (eg nurses, GPs, pharmacists).

These resources have been designed to be used in their entirety to ensure maximum outcomes for Aged Care Community Workers, coordinators, service providers and the client. Familiarise yourself with all components of the program and resources before commencing any professional development activities.

iNotice Facilitator Guide

For an organisation to successfully implement this model to work effectively with a heightened awareness of safe medication management it will be necessary for all stakeholders to participate in professional development. Facilitation of the iNotice Team Workshop and iNotice Coordinator Briefing included in this resource is best done by an experienced facilitator with sound knowledge of the organisation’s policies and procedures. If not, then someone with that knowledge must be in attendance to clarify any operational issues that may arise.

Aged Care Community Worker Handbook

This handbook accompanies the iNotice Team Workshop. In most instances, the team is composed of aged care community workers, coordinators, service managers and any others in the organisation involved in care provision. Copies of this handbook should be made available to all involved in the iNotice professional development program.
