An Aged Care Special
AN-ACC: The New Era in Aged Care Funding – Are you ready?
PRESENTER: Pam Bridges
DATE: 08 September 2022 @ 11:00 AM AEST
PRICE: $59 incl GST
The aged care industry is heading for a major change in the way in which funding is determined. A shadow assessment period has been undertaken and the results are slowly starting to emerge. The only certainty is that funding as we know it will alter and once again we have to get our heads around the changes (they are never-ending).
This session is a must view for all Nurses working in the aged care sector, as well as clinical, quality, and facility managers.
What Ruth had to say about Pam’s presentation:
“Well presented, informative and new knowledge learnt.”
In this session Pam Bridges will investigate:
The current stages of the transition from ACFI (Aged Care Funding Instrument) to AN-ACC (Australian National Aged Care Classification)
The potential budgetary impacts, what planning is necessary and are there technical issues that might be harnessed to make the transition smoother
What are the challenges facing smaller (and/or standalone) providers with the transition
What new skills sets will be required for funding managers to liaise with the government

The Foundation Principles of ECG interpretation and a review of Atrial Fibrillation
PRESENTER: Anne Evans-Murray
DATE: 03 November 2022 @ 10:00 AM AEST
PRICE: $59 incl GST
This e-Seminar provides essential knowledge to any Nurse working in the areas of ward telemetry, coronary care, critical care, and emergency nursing.
It is also critical information for any Nurse or Midwife wanting to upskill their knowledge on the interpretation of arrhythmias.
Understanding the ‘famous five’ of ECG interpretation ensures the recognition of any deviation from the norm.
With this knowledge, you will be able to quickly identify any key indicators of concern, rather than needing to wait for others to interpret the findings. Leading to a better outcome and timely response for the patient/client.
In addition, the most common arrhythmia throughout the world, Atrial Fibrillation (AF) will also be discussed.
What Joy had to say about Anne’s presentation:
“Took 29 years for this to be explained so simply it made sense. I was waiting for polarization, repolarization and all that stuff that leaves me numb and I actually now feel confident reading the telemetry screen. Winner!!”
This session will:
- Identify the three essential parameters (values) that assist with the analysis of a rhythm strip
- Demonstrate how to work out these three parameters: PR interval, QRS width, QT interval and relate this to the ‘famous five’ technique of rapid interpretation
- Identify the most common arrhythmia that patients present to the hospital with
- Recognise the characteristics and associated complications of Arial Fibrillation
