AHPA and ADHA Webinar series: My Health Record and Residential Care

The recent Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality made a range of recommendations to increase the use of My Health Record in aged care, particularly for older people living in residential care.

To help prepare for potential changes in how My Health Record is used and required in the aged care sector, the Australian Digital Health Agency (ADHA) has commenced work on a project to begin developing resources and delivering education for those providing community and residential aged care services.

AHPA is working with the ADHA to develop allied health resources and to support this program. We recently kicked off that work by establishing a small expert group of allied health practitioners who participated in an initial workshop and who will be supporting the work we do to develop resources.

A key part of this project is the delivery of a series of webinars for your members during April and May. The ADHA will be leading the delivery of the webinars, with support from allied health practitioners from the expert group. Those webinars have now been scheduled with details provided below.

We would be extremely grateful if you could use your various communications channels to advertise these webinars to any of your members that might work in aged care or who might provide community or facility-based services. The intention is very much to provide an initial introduction to My Health Record and its potential use so no previous knowledge is required.

Webinar 1 – April 21st, 7pm – 8pm AEST.

This webinar will explore potential benefits of My Health Record for the ageing population to help understand the context for the Royal Commission’s recommendations for its use within the aged care sector. My Health Record can allow access to accurate and relevant clinical information that assists in improving quality of life, care coordination and ultimately reduce potential medication misadventures.

Please join Allied Health Professions Australia (AHPA) and the Australian Digital Health Agency for an interactive session and panel discussion focusing on how digital health tools, such as My Health Record, can support enhanced models of person-centred care. We are pleased to have speakers with a range of expertise join us, who will be able to share their insights on this topic.

All allied health providers working in primary care and in aged care facilities are welcome to attend this session.
