NEW: Qualities and Values and Presence and Listening Skills e-modules are adapted from the Spirituality in Aged Care Professional Development Program and are designed to equip aged care organisations with outcome focused, practical tools for integrating spiritual care for older people. Each module focuses on a core area that can enable all staff engage in spiritual care within the workplace. Using a reflective focus, they can be used by individuals or by small groups. Each module will take approximately 15-20 minutes to complete. You can download SCORM files for your organisation’s Learning Management System from the list above.
Many thanks for those member organisations who provided feedback during the development of these e-modules: Catholic Homes WA, Churches of Christ QLD, Illawarra Diggers NSW, and OneCare TAS. Read our media release here.
The Spiritual Care Orientation: An Integral Part of Caring and ConnecTo Spiritual Screening Tool: E-modules are designed for staff with direct contact with older people.
Spiritual Care Orientation: An integral part of caring – In this e-module, staff can learn at their own pace, engaging with the concepts of spirituality and spiritual care to build confidence in offering spiritual care in their day to day activities. This content is an abridged version of our 45-minute face-to-face orientation program.
ConnecTo Spiritual Screening Tool – This e-module introduces spiritual screening and assessment concepts and invites the learner to participate in real life conversations to integrate their learning. A great way to introduce the ideas in our popular ConnecTo tool, the e-module forms the first part of training in ConnecTo, which also includes a face-to-face learning component. The full face-to-face program is available as a hard copy resource for our members.
