Education

HealthStrong has identified that access to high quality, evidence-based and affordable education on ageing issues can be hard to come by.  HealthStrong launched HealthStrong Academy in 2014 to meet the needs of facilities, community organisations and health professionals working within the field of Gerontology.

HealthStrong Academy offers a variety of education options to ensure that we meet the needs of the aged care industry.  HealthStrong Academy offers:

Manual Handling Training and Competency Assessment:

All HealthStrong staff are trained in delivering manual handling training and competency assessment.  We are able to work with your existing theoretical training or complete both theoretical and practical training based on each facility's needs.  We also have our own suite of competency assessments or can utilise what is available within the facility.

Our manual Handling training:

  • Focuses on anatomy, safe lifting techniques and self-care strategies
  • Is specifically based on profession (nursing and support workers)
  • Small groups to ensure proper ability to practice, assess and offer corrections
  • Competency based - all staff will be assessed against each competency framework

Webinars

HealthStrong Academy offers a constantly growing suite of webinars focused on various topical issues in ageing including dementia and difficult behaviours, palliation, and falls prevention.  Our webinars can be purchased singly or via subscription and facility packages are available to provide organisations with a cost effective option to educate staff at their own convenience.

Our Webinars:

  • Are developed by specialists in the field - Gerontologists, doctors and allied health professionals
  • Have inbuilt assessments and automatically generated certificates to recognise attainment
  • Are nationally accredited and recognised by AHPRA for CPD requirements
  • Have a fully integrated administration function to allow organisations the ability to log in and monitor staff attendance
