As aged care providers you go about your daily operations, focused so heavily on providing care and quality outcomes, but maybe not so focused on the opportunities you may be missing out on. Did you know the Australian Government, Department of Health often offers providers free training and other support services?

There is a program called Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Rural and Remote Service Development and Assistance Panel that provides contracted services for the Department. These contracts are specifically offered to rural and remote providers and services that have limited access to training and support. https://agedcare.health.gov.au/programs/flexible-care/sdap-factsheet

Did you know that, if your contact details are not up to date, you may miss out on many free, Government funded opportunities? And don’t forget to subscribe to the Provider newsletter and check your subscription details regularly to ensure you continue to receive the information you need. https://agedcare.health.gov.au/

Contact the Australian Government, Department of Health to update your contact details every 12 months. We recommend adding a recurring reminder to your general office calendar to maintain the accuracy of these details with the Department and ensure you receive all the information and opportunities available.
