Course: Every Nurse’s Business

12 May, 2023 | News

Welcome to the Continued Professional Development (CPD) programme and online learning site for Australian Registered Nurses to help build nursing capacity to address the healthcare needs of people with intellectual disability (ID) and/or autism (ASD) in mainstream health settings.

The learning site is separated into different learning levels and covers six domains (modules) of content including: care imperatives; communication to individuals with ASD and/or ID; understanding communication from individuals with ASD and/or ID; environments of care; supporting positive behaviour; making things go well; and introduction to the NDIS

 

  • Foundational: A depository of foundational learning content (tiles, explainers, and videos) under the six domains that you may have previously viewed through membership of your professional nursing body is available online. You can take part in a short quiz to claim hours for this level of CPD.
  • Intermediate: This content involves blocks of learning and a variety of information, videos, vignettes, interviews, activities, and further reading under the six domains. Following completion of the six intermediate modules, you can take part in a short quiz to claim hours for this level of CPD.
  • Advanced: The advanced level will build upon your learnings in foundational and intermediate. You will have opportunities to take part in synchronous online learning sessions with experts in the area, as well as activities, videos, information, and further readings. You will also have an option to undertake an assessment and reflective essay which will count toward your CPD hours and requirements.
