Aged Care Webinars

Decision Assist presents a series of webinars to guide you through the fundamentals of advance care planning. Topics include communication, diversity, grief and loss, recognising when a person’s condition is changing, and how to assist people with planning for their current and future care.

Registrations to view webinars can be completed using the links below. This information is also available in the Decision Assist Aged Care Webinar interactive flyer (198kb pdf) which is ideal for e-mail distribution providing direct access to registrations for webinars and also to view past webinars on YouTube, or can be printed and displayed in areas for staff to view.

We value your input into our webinars. When you register for a webinar, you are invited to ask a question or submit a suggestion. Whilst we attempt to respond to a range of submissions during live webinars, we may not be able to address all of them due to constraints of time and scope.
We may therefore consider your questions and suggestions in the development of future webinar content and other Decision Assist activities.

If you have further feedback or require an individual response to a question, please email acpdecisionassist@austin.org.au.
