Online Webinar

One of the key issues providers need to address with AN-ACC is pain management. We need to remember (1) there is no specific pain management claim under the AN-ACC model, and (2) Allied Health staff are not included in the care minute requirement.

This webinar will explore:

There are five key steps that can be taken to transition your 4b pain management program:

  1. Identify – Analysis of care information to identify potentially suitable candidates to remove from 4B onto alternative.
  2. Case conferencing – Discussion with care staff and allied health regarding the resident and suitability for other pain management.
  3. Tracking – Managing the transition of residents from 4b onto alternative solutions.
  4. Innovation – Trial of alternative methods of pain management including group classes.
  5. Compliance –Check care information to ensure pain is being managed.

Pain management and physiotherapy are required therapies as part of a care plan in Australian Aged Care and will continue to be after AN-ACC commences. The available alternatives to the 4b programs currently widely employed are numerous and the transition can be managed well.
