Continence Foundation of Australia Focus Groups

Are you a disability support worker or aged care worker supporting or caring for someone in the community with continence concerns?

What is the focus group for?

There is an opportunity for frontline support workers to make a difference by adding their thoughts and comments to the development of a web-based app. The Continence Foundation of Australia would like to know how frontline workers and team leaders access information about continence issues. They are interested to see if a web-based app makes it easier to access help.

There has been some testing of ideas, but the Continence Foundation of Australia would like to continue testing assumptions with focus groups to ensure that the tools support workers who regularly interact with clients to provide care and support.

By the end of the session, the Foundation hopes to find out:

  • The type of continence support workers provide
  • What support workers need to assist their clients
  • The best way this support can be delivered at the point of care.

Who is it for?

The Continence Foundation of Australia would like to consult with disability and aged care support organisations and individual workers, excluding those working in residential aged care settings.

All participants will receive a small imbursement for their time. The session will last for one hour and light refreshments will be available.

When is it? 

There are two sessions available:

  1. Aged Care Personal Care Workers
    Tuesday June 6, 6:00pm - 7:15pm
     
  2. Disability Support Workers

Please select the date relevant to you before registering.

Both sessions will be held at Health Issues Centre on Level 1 at 255 Bourke Street, Melbourne.
