Managers and Aspiring Leaders Workshop

Nelson - 4 Feb. 2021


The Hotel Nelson 
40 Waimea Road
Nelson South
Nelson 7010



This workshop will provide valuable training for managers and aspiring leaders working in aged care.

Topics covered will include managing stress in the workplace with a focus on resilience strategies – how people are able to bring their best thinking and relationship skills to challenges they encounter, along with keeping themselves well? This will be an interesting and interactive session that is relevant with the events and stresses that we have all experienced over the 2020 pandemic outbreak.

Jackie Moore is our guest presenter and comes with a wealth of insight into mental health service delivery, strategic health direction, people and capability, and organisational development. Jackie was involved in supporting the mental health and addiction sector in its response to the aftermath of the Canterbury Earthquakes and the 15 March terrorist event. Jackie has been presenting and facilitating workshops in Self-care, Trauma Informed Practice and Navigating the Mental Health System over the last two years. 

Rhonda Sherriff, NZACA Clinical Advisor, will present on staff management, including how to utilise your skilled caregiving staff to ensure they take on appropriate responsibility and perform optimally. There is a higher number of Level 3 and 4 care staff in our sector than ever before and this session will explore how to manage your budget and this workforce for the best care delivery outcomes.  

Registration for the day begins at 8.30am and sessions will start promptly at 9am, concluding by 4.30pm.

Lunch and tea break meals will be provided and participants will receive a certificate of attendance via email after the workshop.
