Course description

Focus on what is required to work collaboratively with clients and/or their carers while supporting and monitoring goal achievement within an established Goal Directed Care Plan.

Learning objectives

  • Understand the value of documenting client goals in a Goal Directed Care Plan and how this is supported within the community care sector
  • Describe and discuss the monitoring role of the direct care worker in supporting client goals within a wellness approach
  • Identify and reflect on practices that incorporate a wellness approach, the person’s preferences and strengths and organisational policies and procedures
  • Develop, document and/or report progress of a person’s care goals or care plan

Target audience

This course is open to staff and volunteers of CHSP and/or HACC PYP providers in Victoria.

It is suitable for community care workers, direct care workers, allied health assistants, social support workers, and volunteers.

This course is suitable for all new or existing staff and volunteers who want to build and/or refresh their understanding about goal directed care planning, and their role in monitoring and supporting clients within the care planning process. This course is designed for staff not directly involved in the development of care plans. A basic understanding of the wellness approach is required.

This course is not recommended for staff who are directly involved in the development of care plans. These staff should instead consider Service specific care planning, Embedding goal directed care planning (advanced), or Review a service specific goal directed care plan.
