Dementia Australia


1:40 PM Facilitating Experiential Learning Techniques to Improve Long-Term Workforce Engagement and Future Planning

Staff retention and funding challenges have become an ongoing conversation within both the aged care and mental health sector, with the NDIS seeing some teams struggle with the changing processes. As the rate of mental health, dementia in particular, is predicted to double by 2050, Dementia Australia have ensured their teams are able to tackle the social and economic challenges taking place in health. National Chief Executive Officer, Maree McCabee, will talk through the implementation of their Virtual Dementia Tours, and their focus on experiential learning to improve staff engagement.

  • Navigating towards a culture where teams are prompted to understand the value of their roles to improve both patient and workforce outcomes
  • Implementing virtual dementia tours that alter standard textbook learning and allow teams to learn by active engagement
  • Attracting the right teams who will be able to adapt to changes in procedures relating to NDIS and technology innovations
