Project status: In progress
Led by Professor Helen Edwards OAM, the national dissemination program followed on from the pilot program completed in 2010. The aim of this program is to disseminate the Champion for Skin Integrity (CSI) model of wound care to the Residential Aged Care sector throughout Australia.
Champion for Skin Integrity resource kits were distributed to all Residential Aged Care Facilities (RACFs) throughout Australia. Staff from the facilities were then invited to attend an intensive one day workshop. Attendees gained the knowledge and skills to implement the CSI model of wound care within their own facility or organisation.
The key requirement for the facilities to participate in the workshops was to identify a clinical leader with strong commitment to supporting the implementation of evidence-based practice in skin integrity and wound care, and for them to become a Champion of Skin Integrity so that they could train other staff in wound management.
The distribution of the CSI resource kits and workshops were completed in early 2015. The project team is now developing a suite of wound care resource material that will be located on the Department of Social Services website. The project is due for completion in June 2015.
This project was funded by the Australian Department of Social Services (DSS) under the Encouraging Better Practice in Aged Care (EBPAC) program.
For more information contact the Project Director, Dr Kathleen Finlayson.
The National Dissemination project consists of three primary elements:
The CSI resource kit provides new CSI's with information on how to develop as a CSI and to implement the CSI model of wound management. It has a wide range of evidence-based resources, which can be accessed from the publications and output section.
All RACFs throughout Australia (a total of 2740) have now been issued with a CSI resource kit. Additionally, each workshop participant (541 in round one and 745 in round two) was issued with their own personal kit.;Requests for additional kits were accommodated (a total of 1377) and seminar and conference
attendees (200 participants) also received a kit. This comes to a total of 5603 resource kits distributed throughout Australia.
These one day workshops are free of charge, presented by project staff renowned in wound management and conducted in capital cities and strategic regional venues throughout Australia. The workshop component is key to the project because it provides and spreads the knowledge and skills needed to implement
the evidence based CSI model of wound management within RACFs. Our vision is that workshop participants will become new champions and, along with their teams of CSIs, act as a resource and first point of contact for evidence-based education and change management relating to skin integrity and wound care.
The workshops are intended for staff who work in the residential aged care sector with the interest and the capability of implementing evidence-based wound management within their facility or organisation. We aimed to include a sample of participants spread across geographical and organisational boundaries
so that they could be a resource for nearby facilities or other facilities within their wider organisation. For the regional workshops, we encouraged a broader range of participants by accepting registrations from those people who may not have a direct involvement in the residential aged care sector
but were involved in health services for older adults and had an interest in wound management.
During the workshop, participants are:
After three months participants are expected to send a one page report on the progress of the implementation.
The DSS are currently working with the EBPAC-CSI team and other EBPAC projects to upload resource material to the DSS website for clinical domains including:
Departmental resources including the flu, gastro and restraint kits, a nutrition guide and infection control resources will also be made available on the DSS website in addition to the material produced by the clinical domains.
Evidence based guidelines summaries provide a compilation of the evidence as it relates to the assessment, management and prevention of each wound type. Note the documents are based on an evidence review carried out in Dec 2013.
These brochures have been developed for health professionals and can be used as a reference guide for each wound type.
Tip sheets provide clients, family and carers with a simple list of do's and don'ts for each wound type.
Role descriptions provide a simple list of functions and requirements for each role category.
These flowcharts provide an outline of the various stages of wound management.
