Continuing PD course for nursing patients with an ID

Event Details


  • The Australian College of Nursing is offering a two-day course for nursing patients with an intellectual disability in December which will achieve 14 hours of CPD training for registered and enrolled nurses.
    Nursing a person with an intellectual disability requires advanced clinical assessment skills, a multidisciplinary approach to health care, an understanding of relevant legal issues, good communication skills, and familiarity with behavioural and mental health comorbidities. Through focusing on case presentations, this two-day course will address preventative health measures and the health management of people with intellectual disabilities and their carers in a comprehensive way.
    Key learning outcomes for the course:
    • Identify common acute and chronic health concerns and their treatment for people with an intellectual disability.
    • Understand health care management plans and their evaluation.
    • Discuss strategies to enhance the health of people with intellectual disabilities in health care and community settings.
    • Understand the principles of person-centred care and good communication in nursing people with an intellectual disability and their carers.
