This online micro-credential develops psycho-social skills important to working with older people. It is aimed at students who wish to advance their knowledge and skills for aged care clinical placement. The micro-credential focuses on clinical placement in aged care and explores the key psycho-social concepts of person-centred care, narrative competence and storytelling skills. Learners are able to assess their own knowledge of aged-care and capabilities in narrative competence. On the topic of aged care and narrative competence, learners explore creative strategies to put into practice the power of stories in working with and for older people.
Person-centred care, narrative skills, elements of compelling stories, and the benefits of story-sharing for clients, clinicians, students, and the community will be explored.
