AUSTRALIA-WIDE AGED CARE SURVEY:
Investigating the National Guidelines for Spiritual Care in Aged Care – finding out if and how they are working for you
The new Aged Care Quality Standards expect all organisations to respond to each person’s spiritual needs.
Meaningful Ageing is seeking to understand the current uptake of the federally funded National Guidelines for Spiritual Care in Aged Care in order to inform our future work.
Amy Heath, a PhD candidate from La Trobe University has a keen interest in the spiritual health of older people and saw a natural fit with the work of Meaningful Ageing Australia.
As such, a partnership developed. We are looking to find out from you how the world-first guidelines launched in 2016 for Spiritual Care in Aged Care are working within your organisation, including the whole range of experiences from non- to thorough-engagement.
All staff and volunteers in any role are invited to participate.
Please take 10 minutes to fill in the anonymous survey.
You will have the opportunity at the conclusion of the survey to provide contact details to Amy if you are interested in participating in focus groups in the second half of this year.
Meaningful Ageing Australia and La Trobe University are looking forward to building the spiritual capacity of everyone working in aged care and would appreciate your help to do this.
Please feel free to contact Amy (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have any questions or would like more information.
As well as taking the survey yourself, please share this message with your colleagues or just share the survey link.
Thank you for your contribution.
