UNE Partnerships in collaboration with the University of New England (UNE) are delighted to announce the development of the new Person-Centred Respite Care Program, proudly funded by the Queensland Government.
The Project commenced in April 2017, during this time we have collaborated with stakeholders to draft, evaluate and refine the content and visual style of the program.
The program is an evidence-based and multi-dimensional package that aims to enhance the ability and capability of service providers to deliver a person-centred respite care approach and address current barriers to uptake. In development of the program our focus was on identifying gaps in information and not duplicating existing resource materials. It is important to note to avoid confusion that while the resource material supports and references accreditation standards it is not intended to be an accredited program.
Expected benefits from adopting the program is described below:
