As a care manager I am glad we introduced Altura Learning to our team. It has taken some of the pressure from the staff to prepare and deliver evidence-based practice. Altura is an excellent online learning platform that provides the latest expectations. It is convenient to use in your own time or at work. As it is developed for aged care, this means we are exposing our staff to evidence based practice whilst ensuring that policy and governance is followed. It supports the mandatory as well as ongoing education required.
Over time as staff have taken the time to access the courses, we have noticed that their communication style and delivery of care has changed in a positive manner. They have a better understanding of what is best practice. On our care floor they will speak to each other about the learning and practices that we need to adopt with confidence. They speak very positively about their Altura Learning experience to their colleagues, encouraging them to complete the individual courses based on their concerns/ needs. For our team it is an excellent investment to upskill or remind staff about best practice not just for delivery to the residents, but also to look after themselves.
