Serious Incident Response Scheme and Responding to Abuse

Requirements of the Serious Incident Response Scheme and Responding to Abuse

This session will cover topics such as:

  • What happens after a report of suspected, alleged or actual elder abuse is made to a supervisor within an agency?  (There are now different response pathways when there is an allegation of direct staff involvement in a serious incident leading to harm for a client and when there is an allegation of abuse caused by a family member or friend.)
  • What are the new mandatory reporting requirements for home support and home care providers after the introduction of the Serious Incident Reporting Scheme (SIRS) in late 2022?
  • What do all staff and volunteers need to know and do?
  • How does this relate to the NSW Interagency Policy on Responding to the Abuse of Older People?

This 90-minute session is designed for coordinators and senior staff. It covers the requirements for agency policy statements, the design of appropriate response procedures, incident management system requirements and the new reporting arrangements under SIRS.

Glen Sorensen is the founder of Age Communications and works as an independent consultant with all tiers of government, industry peaks, and the non-government and private sectors. A facilitator, trainer, researcher, writer and resource developer, Glen has been continuously involved with the community care sector for more than 30 years.  He has a thorough understanding of the policy and program directions in community care, packaged care, consumer-directed care and person-centred approaches. Glen travels extensively around NSW supporting providers to be ready for the brave, new aged care world.

This event will be held online on Zoom. The details will be sent out closer to the event date.
