Overview

GCAgedCareMgmt-585x350

The course aims to support graduates to achieve specialised theoretical and professional knowledge and skills for an aged care environment that requires safe, effective and efficient health service delivery in providing quality care to older people. It is essential for managers to have appropriate knowledge and skills to meet the needs of older persons within a transcultural context. Core units of study in the Graduate Certificate focus on management strategies to effectively identify and support the spiritual and psychosocial needs associated with ageing, and to lead an organisational culture that positively underpins quality and safety.
