caring@home resources for services during COVID-19
To assist clinical service providers during the COVID-19 pandemic, caring@home has produced augmented caring@home packages for carers.
These include an emergency COVID-19 pack to support home-based care and help limit risks of community COVID-19 transmission. The packages are funded by the Australian Government.
Using the resources contained in the emergency COVID-19 packs, health professionals can remotely teach volunteer carers how to insert a subcutaneous cannula or give a subcutaneous injection.
The augmented caring@home package for carers is free and includes:
- regular caring@home package for carers
- emergency COVID-19 pack
- starter pack of clinical items for training and practise
- step-by-step guides, information sheets and short training videos on USB.
More information about the inclusions in the augmented package for carers and the emergency COVID-19 pack can be found here.
