We will begin trialling the Palliative Care assessment in selected aged residential care settings on 3 August, and you will see this appear in Momentum.
We have already been in touch with everyone who is participating in the trial. If you are not a trial participant, please don’t use the assessment yet. We expect it to be ready for everyone to use after October.
We’ll update you on our progress at the end of the trial.
Community clinicians: you can keep using the Palliative Care assessment in your setting as normal.
Following the move to COVID-19 Alert Level 1, the normal schedule of LTCF assessments will resume on 1 July 2020.
When is an assessment required?
From 1 July onwards, an LTCF assessment must be conducted on admission to an aged residential care facility, whenever a change in the level of care is required, or reassessment every six months.
What help is available?
We are keen to help you make the transition back to the normal schedule, as easy as possible. interRAI can provide skills boosters, LTCF training by distance or in person, plus our staff are available to answer your questions.
