ASSESSMENT TASK 2: WORKPLACE PROJECT 
Task summary: You are to work with a real aged care client to determine ways in which they can be empowered and achieve their goals and aspirations.

What do I need in order to complete this assessment?

  • Access to an aged care workplace
  • Access to an aged care client
  • Access to workplace policies and procedures
  • Access to aids and equipment
  • Permission from your supervisor and the client to undertake this task.

When do I do this task?

  • You will do this task in your workplace. The first part will be completed during one of your assessor’s workplace visits.
  • Write in the due date as advised by your assessor: _________________________________

what do I need to do if I get something wrong?

If your assessor identifies that you did not complete all requirements of this task correctly, they will give you feedback and you will need to redo the incorrect part again.

Instructions:

This task requires you to work with a real client in your aged care workplace. You are to find out what they would like to achieve to feel more empowered and have a better quality of life (this may be in regard to their health or social wellbeing, for example). Your role involves responding to their goals and aspirations by identifying and providing services that meet their needs.

Your assessor will observe your initial interaction with your client.

You are also required to complete the attached Client Report template, and will need your supervisor to sign off on it. This will need to be completed over a period of time – this is so your client has time to access the service/s and there is time for them to make changes to services if and as required.

You must get permission from your supervisor to work with the client you have chosen (they may determine the client isn’t suitable to participate in this assessment, and may suggest another client). Once your client has been chosen, you must obtain permission from them to participate in this task.

You must not proceed with this assessment until the forms have been signed by your supervisor and the client who is participating.

Once you have the necessary permissions, you will need to do the following.

  1. Meet with your client and learn about their goals/wishes. Your assessor will observe this part of the task.

During this part your assessor will be looking to see that you can:

  • Use a person-centred approach
  • Respect differences in regard to the client’s cultural, spiritual and social needs and preferences
  • Encourage the client to feel comfortable to express themselves and talk openly about their needs, preferences, wishes, etc
  • Avoid imposing your own values and attitudes
  • Allow the client dignity of risk when making decisions
  • Show that you can establish a trusting relationship with the client
  • Empower the client in regard to taking some responsibility in achieving their goals and aspirations to achieve better health and quality of life
  • Discuss any physical and social enablers and disablers the client may have
  • Discuss service options that would empower the client
  • Discuss the risks involved with ageing, especially those that may impact the services being considered and the client’s activities of daily living
  • Discuss with the client their rights, your service’s complaint mechanisms and how you will ensure their safety
  • Discuss with the client their right to privacy and confidentiality and how you and the organisation ensure client information is kept private.

You can use the information in the Client Report template below to guide your discussion.

Once the client discussion is over, you will need to work with your supervisor or colleagues to organise client access to the services discussed.

  • Complete the Client Report over a period of time, reflecting on your experience with your client. Use the Client Report template provided to help guide you in your response. Make sure you provide as much detail as you can about each section. Get your supervisor to sign off at the end of the report.

Instructions to the Supervisor

As part of the evidence of competency for this student, we are seeking reports from the student’s workplace supervisor. This forms part of the evidence for the unit CHCAGE001 Facilitate the empowerment of older people.

What is the purpose of this?

The purpose of this process is to gain confirmation from someone who has worked regularly with the student who can verify that the student performs their skills satisfactorily to workplace requirements on a regular basis.

How will the information I provide be used?

The assessor will use the information you provide in this report, combined with other assessment evidence provided by the student to make a final decision about competency.

How and when do I fill in the report?

You do not need to observe the student over a particular period of time or completing certain tasks. If you place a tick in the ‘Yes’ column in the report, you are confirming that you are comfortable with the student’s skills in the relevant area and that you have seen them work satisfactorily to workplace expectations.

Please also include comments and examples in the space provided wherever possible.

If you do not believe that the student demonstrates appropriate skills in the area listed, please place a tick in the ‘No’ column and provide reasons and comments about why you have said ‘No’. 

If you are unsure or not able to comment on the student’s skills in a particular area, please place a tick in the ‘Not able to confirm’ column.

What should I do if I am unsure of the expectations?

Please contact the student’s assessor if you are unsure of any of the requirements of filling in this Supervisor Report. The student will have their direct contact details.

Who should fill in this report if I am unable to do so?

If you are not able to confirm the student’s skills in all of the following areas, please confirm the areas you can and ask another qualified person from the workplace to confirm skills in the other areas. They will also need to sign the report.

Please fill in the following report.                                                                                                                   

Area/ Skills to be confirmedYes (ü)No (ü)Not able to confirm (ü)Provide examples or comments on student’s skills and performance in this area
Did the student show respect for clients’ cultural differences? For example, by respecting rituals and customs, by respecting and understanding any religious beliefs and customs, applying a non-discriminatory approach, learning about the differences between themselves and their clients, applying a sensitive approach, not passing judgment or trying to enforce own values, etc.    
Did the student show respect for clients’ social differences? For example, by respecting friendship groups, relationships, family dynamics, encouraging the development of friendships and relationships, not passing opinions or judgments on aspects of clients’ social lives and interactions, learning about clients’ lived experiences and how this has made them into who they are, treating clients with respect and dignity regarding their choices, etc.    
Did the student show respect for clients’ spiritual differences? For example, by respecting clients’ beliefs, the associated customs and celebrations, not belittling clients, not trying to force or discuss own spiritual beliefs, being open to learning about the differences between themselves and their clients, etc.    
Did the student demonstrate effective communication skills to develop and maintain trust and goodwill with clients? For example, by talking in a way that their clients can understand, by providing information in preferred languages and formats/media, by being supportive and empathetic, by using appropriate body language and non-verbal cues, being friendly and interested in what they have to say, not interrupting, etc. The student must be able to maintain good relationships with clients over a period of time, which should be seen in the way clients respond and communicate with the student, and how they treat each other with mutual respect and interest.     
Did the student maintain privacy, confidentiality and dignity of clients by following workplace procedures? For example, by not passing on confidential information without consent, by ensuring clients understand how information will be used, stored and shared, by allowing clients to have their privacy where required, allowing dignity (such as when discussing support required, discussing clients’ preferences and needs, helping clients with activities of daily living, etc).     
Did the student work with clients to determine appropriate services to meet their needs and preferences? Appropriate services should be those that are tailored to client needs, and take into consideration their cultural, social and spiritual background, their current health status and needs. The student must apply a person-centred approach, focusing on clients’ strengths and wishes rather than using negativity or referring to areas that need to be ‘fixed’. Clients must have the right to make decisions in the services being provided and to refuse the services suggested.    
Did the student avoid imposing their own values and attitudes on clients? For example, this may include allowing clients to exercise dignity of risk even if they do not approve, not trying to force services or activities on clients because they think it’s best for them (and the client does not), not passing judgment on the client’s personal preferences, etc. The student must be supportive and encouraging at all times to ensure clients are empowered and taking control of their lives as much as possible.    
Did the student encourage clients to participate in activities of daily living as much they are able to do so, and to provide support where needed? For example, support may include assistance with specific tasks that are proving difficult due to ageing, allowing dignity of risk, being respectful of the client’s feelings and sensitivities about their abilities, obtaining aids and modifications to support them, reviewing existing plans and services, etc.    
Did the student provide information to clients to support and encourage them to maintain activities of daily living as much as possible? For example, this may include information about aids, modifications, other support services, etc. The student must show a positive, motivational and encouraging approach when providing information, and make sure information is provided in formats and languages that clients can understand.    
Did the student adjust services as required to meet client needs? For example, services may need to be changed if clients cannot access them any longer, the services aren’t providing the expected outcomes, clients are unhappy with the provider or the person they are dealing with, client physical and/or emotional wellbeing needs change, funding to services changes, etc.    
Did the student demonstrate a flexible, adaptable and person-centred approach to work? For example, by respecting the clients’ own schedules, by treating the client as an individual, by involving the client in decision making, and adapting or changing services to meet the clients’ needs, etc.    
Did the student ensure that clients understood their rights, as well as those related to complaints processes? For example, this may include discussing the complaints procedure, providing the client with service information, charter of rights, discussing with the client workers’ roles and responsibilities and limitations, etc.    
Did the student demonstrate the ability to identify risks and take appropriate action to address the risks? For example, this may include risks related to the client’s health, the risks related to impacts of ageing on the body, risks within the client’s home that impact their ability to maintain independence, security risks, hygiene risks, risks related to services/activities being provided, risk to mental health, risks to social wellbeing, etc.    
Did the student demonstrate the ability to follow workplace health and safety procedures? For example, this may include reporting any concerns about the wellbeing/welfare of clients, completing incident reporting, ensuring the workplace environment is safe and free of hazards, working in a manner that respects the safety of those around them, ensuring services to be provided to clients are safe, ensuring clients’ homes are safe and secure, allowing dignity of risk in decisions made, yet still considering duty of care obligations, etc.    
Please provide any further comments or observations you have made about the student’s performance in relation to the skills required as above.

For example, talk to the client about the time of day, refer to clocks and calendars, use the client’s name frequently, discuss current events, talk about what is happening that day, ask the client about their photos or other special items.
For example, show empathy, use reassurance, ask questions and encourage the client to talk about past experiences or people, do not judge, reman respectful, use empathetic statement such as ““You miss him,” “You were close,” “You want to be back in your house. What would you do there?”
For example, follow familiar routines, encourage client to use their existing skills (such as arts or crafts, reading, simple cooking), ensure that the client’s cultural likes and dislikes are considered, assist the client with autonomy
For example, do a visual check for hazards and potential risks, supervise the client, encourage the client to take safe risks, encourage the client to do things themselves where appropriate.

Task Summary: You are to support at least two clients in your workplace with a range of personal care needs.

What do I need in order to complete this assessment?

  • Access to at least two clients
  • Approval from each client and your supervisor to undertake personal care activities
  • Personal care aids, supplies and equipment specific to the activities being undertaken
  • Access to a qualified aged care worker (for example, your supervisor)
  • Journal (see end of this task)
  • Supervisor confirmation checklist (see end of this task).

When do I do this task?

  • You will do this task during your assessor’s visit to your workplace service.
  • Write in the date of your assessor’s visit: __________________________________________

What do I need to hand in?

  • Completed journal (if alternative arrangements need to be made)
  • Supervisor Confirmation Report.

what do I need to do if I get something wrong?

If your assessor sees that you have not shown appropriate skills or knowledge, or receives feedback from your supervisor that you did not show appropriate skills or knowledge, they will give you some feedback and you will need to do the specific task again.

Instructions:

For this task you need to provide personal care support for at least two clients in your workplace, as set out in their individualised care plans.

Each of the following tasks must be demonstrated at least once during the care that you provide:

  • Bed bathing
  • Showering
  • Oral hygiene
  • Grooming
  • Shaving
  • Dressing and undressing
  • Eating and drinking
  • Using aids and equipment – such as hoists, wheelchairs, walkers, lift chairs, motorised beds, crutches,
  • Toileting and/or use of continence aids.

You do not have to do each task twice – for example, you might bed-bath client 1 and shower client 2. A qualified care worker (for example, your supervisor) must supervise your provision of care services and confirm the tasks to be performed by completing the checklist at the end of this task. Make sure you give this checklist to them before you start.

You must obtain permission from your clients and your workplace supervisor for your assessor to observe these activities. Where permission is unable to be sought, refer to the ‘Alternative arrangements’ section for further information.

Alternative arrangements: In some cases it may not be possible for your assessor to observe all of these personal care needs, either due to respecting the privacy and dignity of clients or due to the specific type of care not being required by clients during your assessor’s workplace visit.  Your assessor will therefore ask you to explain, in detail, each of the procedures related to the tasks they did not observe during their workplace visit. A journal is provided at the end of this task. You will need to document in this journal any personal support activities provided that were not able to be observed by your assessor. You must provide a detailed account of what you did, the steps you took, how you communicated with the client and how you made them feel at ease during the process. Each entry in your journal must be signed off and dated by your supervisor to confirm it is an accurate record of your work practice..
Your assessor will be looking to see that you: Correctly undertake each personal care support activity Check and confirm each client’s individual care plan to determine their needs. Make sure you are able to do the tasks and will have access to everything you needTalk to your supervisor about anything that you are not sure about or believe may be beyond your capacity Gather all equipment and aids you will need to do the task – make adjustments as necessary to meet the client’s needsAssess the environment, equipment and tasks to be performed for health and safety risksTalk to your supervisor about any issues with providing support and the impact that providing support can have on clientsIntroduce yourself to each client on your arrival and talk to them about the personal care task you will be helping them withAllow each client to discuss how they would like support to be provided and how much they will participate Make sure your clients are comfortable with and consent to the personal care to be provided Respond respectfully and positively to each client’s needs, including any cultural needs, physical or sensory needsCommunicate appropriately with each client during the activity so they know what is happening and/or what is going to happen (where equipment and aids are used, ensure you talk your client through their use)Check for any changes in health or personal care needs and follow procedures to report as required Protect each client’s privacy and dignityTalk to your supervisor about any risks you identify and what to do about them.Correctly apply infection control techniquesCorrectly apply manual handling techniquesRespond appropriately where client interactions or personal care activities are of a difficult nature Complete all documentation and reporting requirements as per workplace procedures Store documentation in line with your workplace’s procedures.

Instructions to the student: you must give this checklist to your supervisor or other qualified person who supervised you during your personal care activities. The completed checklist must be submitted as part of your assessment for this task.

Instructions to the supervisor: As part of the evidence of competency for the student named below, we are seeking reports from the supervisor or other qualified care worker who supervised the student during the personal activities required of this task. The purpose of this process is to obtain confirmation that the student is able to follow workplace policies and procedures, and safely and competently work with clients to complete the care activities listed in the task. The student must obtain permission from the clients involved in this task and their supervisor for their assessor to be present. In the event that the assessor is not able to observe the student completing some (or all) of the care activities, your confirmation will be a valuable piece of supporting evidence. The assessor will use the information you provide in this report, combined with other assessment evidence provided by the student (their journal) to make a final decision about competency. Please talk to the student’s assessor if you are unsure of any of the requirements of filling in this document.

For client 1:
Did the student correctly undertake each personal care support activity as per workplace procedures/requirements?    
Did the student check and confirm each client’s individual care plan to work out their needs?    
Did the student respond respectfully and positively to each client’s needs? For example, did the student consider culture – was it acceptable for them to assist with bathing, toileting and dressing?; how was the client’s hearing, did the student raise their voice in an inappropriate manner or speak to the client using an inappropriate tone?; did the client respect any other sensory issues?; did the student respond appropriately and respectfully where the client was unable to speak or did not speak English as their first language?; did the student gain an understanding of what was the client was physically capable of doing or what they would like to do?; did the student show consideration and care for clients with dementia or other issues that may impact their needs and the way in which services needed to be provided?    
Did the student introduce themselves to each client upon arrival and talk to them about the personal care task they were going to do? For example, did the student greet clients warmly; tell them their name; refer to the client by name; tell the client what they were there to do; ask how they like to do the task or if they needed something specific, etc?    
Did the student make sure each client was comfortable with the process before they started? For example, did the student: ask clients if they had a preferred order in which to do things; help the client pick out their clothes and lay them out in order before showering/bathing? Work in a way to avoid embarrassment, fear, disempowerment and/or humiliation of their clients. This may have included giving the client some privacy when requested, allowing them to wash certain parts of their body, encouraging them to do certain tasks, not showing disgust when assisting with toileting or bathing, and so on.    
Did the student protect each client’s privacy and dignity during the tasks? For example, did the student: knock before entering the client’s room; ask them if it was okay to come in; show respect when assisting with toileting, showering, bathing and other activities; allow the client to wash parts of their body if they did not want the student to assist;; cover parts of the body that were not being bathed to maintain privacy (and to keep the client warm and dry)    
Did the student assess the environment and the task to be performed for health and safety risks? For example, risks might include slips, trips and falls hazards, skin or bodily injury; oral safety; own personal safety; cleanliness of facilities being used; condition of items being used; checking functionality and safety of equipment to be used; checking that dry and clean towels are provided; checking that personal care items/tools belong to the client etc.    
Did the student talk to you about any risks they identified and what to do about them? This may not be applicable if there were no risks in the area. However, you should confirm with the student that there are no risks (if this is the case). If there are risks and the student has not identified them, they must not proceed with the task until they are identified.    
Did the student gather all equipment and aids needed to do the task? Did they make adjustments to equipment as necessary? Equipment will vary depending on tasks. For example, non-slip mats, towels, face washers, soap, shampoo and conditioner, razor, shaving cream, aftershave lotion, floss, toothpaste, toothbrush, glass/tumbler, denture brush, soaking container, continence pads, nail clippers, nail files, hairbrushes, combs, hair styling tools, hairspray etc.    
Did the student communicate appropriately with each client during the activity? For example, did the student use the name of the client when talking to them; explain what they were doing at each step; encourage the client’s participation to do tasks within their ability; observe body language, reactions and what is being said; ask if the client is okay or if they needed anything in particular; reassure them if they became agitated or concerned; provide encouragement and verbal support when the client undertakes a task of their own; communicates in a positive manner; provides instructions clearly etc.    
Did the student use correct manual handling techniques? For example, when helping clients out of bed; helping clients on and off of the toilet; helping clients in and out of the shower; bending down or leaning; doing repetitive movements ; using mechanical aids as required. This must include identifying where they may need to use equipment rather than attempt the manual handling alone, call for support from another person where required, bending and lifting as per manual handling guidelines, etc.    
Did the student talk to you about any issues with providing support and the impact that providing support can have on clients? The student must talk to you about any issues encountered. If none were encountered, the student should still talk about how personal support activities can affect clients. For example, some clients may be uncomfortable with needing help going to the bathroom or being bathed or showered. Some clients may respond in difficult ways that require the student to apply calming communication and a respectful and sensitive approach; some clients may dislike use of aids and modifications to help them and try to avoid their use etc    
Did the student complete all required documentation correctly? For example, did the student note in each client’s care plan the type of care provided; did they note observations made and/or issues encountered; did they record any changes to care that were required; did they sign and date all entries.    
Did the student complete all documentation using the required reporting technologies? For example, the student may complete documentation using hard copy files/ paperwork, use a tablet or computer to update client information, etc.    
Did the student store documentation in line with workplace procedures? For example, did the student correctly save documents on electronic file systems; file hard copy documents in the correct location; ensure system or hard copy storage locations were accessed securely (locking up cabinets after use, not leaving files around when they can be viewed by unauthorised personnel, using own passwords and logins to systems and logging out after use, etc).    
For client 2:
Did the student correctly undertake each personal care support activity as per workplace procedures/requirements?

 ASSESSMENT TASK 3: WORKPLACE PROJECT 
Task summary: You are required to write a report on the provision of support services for three clients in your workplace (one report for each client).

What do I need in order to complete this assessment?

  • Access to your workplace
  • Access to three clients in your workplace
  • Supervisor’s permission form for each client (see end of this task)
  • Access to three individual support services plans
  • Access to a computer (if you prefer to type out your answers).

When do I do this assessment?

  • You will do this task in your workplace.
  • Write in the due date as advised by your assessor: _________________________________

what do I need to do if I get something wrong?

If your assessor sees that you have not completed all parts of each report correctly, or have not worked with three clients, they will give you some feedback and you will need to resubmit.

Instructions:

This task requires you to choose three clients and report on how you used their individual support plans to provide support.

Before you begin this task, you must obtain permission from your supervisor to work with each client. Where possible, try to choose at least one client who has a guardianship or advocacy arrangement in place, or who has a family member or carer involved in their care.

Ask your supervisor to sign the permission forms at the end of this task. You will need to submit this as part of your assessment.

Review the report template provided – there is one for each client you will need to fill out. This will help you figure out what you need to do and write about.

Your reports will need to be filled in over a period of time, as you will more than likely not be able to fill them out based on one day or one shift of work. Where you are unable to answer or experience any of the items in the template provided, talk to your supervisor about how these items are addressed by carers.

Provide as much detail as you can in your report for each area (at least one – two paragraphs).

Remember, in order to adhere to privacy and confidentiality procedures, you must make sure that you do not:

  • identify your clients by name
  • identify family members or friends of the client by name
  • document any other identifiable information (such as names of health practitioners, locations of other services being used, etc)
  • identify colleagues by name.

You should refer to clients as Client 1, Client 2 and Client 3 or similar. Refer to family as Family 1, Family 2 or mother, sister, father, husband etc. Refer to locations in the generic sense, such as ‘a trip to the GP’ or ‘a session with their counsellor’ and so on. Refer to colleagues as Colleague 1 or Staff 1 or Support Worker 1 or similar.

When you have finished each report, give it to your supervisor to review and sign off that your statements are accurate and true records of your work activities and performance.

Scenario 1 – Rachella
Rachella Bryan is one of your clients. Rachella suffers from anxiety and depression, which also includes obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) when she is experiencing severe anxiety. Her OCD tends to focus on household and personal cleanliness and order. She has reported spending many hours straightening up her home and cleaning the same area over and over. She takes medication and is monitored by her GP. Rachella also has counselling once per fortnight. Today Rachella is very fidgety. Her hands are red raw and the skin is cracked. She says she has been stressed because her workplace has announced redundancies. She has not been there for very long, so she is positive they will be letting her go. ‘First in, first out, right?’ she says with a humourless laugh. When you ask her if she is okay she suddenly snaps at you and says “Of course I’m not all right – nothing is all right. You know nothing!! How can I pay my rent if I don’t have a job? No one can help me – I’m sick of everything – I just can’t go on anymore!’ After talking to Rachella more, you discover she has stopped taking her medication and has barely slept. She spent last night cleaning her bathroom, she said she feels like she has scrubbed away the porcelain of her bathtub. During the day she spent hours in her laundry organising her towels and bedding. Then she wasn’t satisfied with the order of the manchester and decided to reorganise them based on colour and size. Rachella also suffers from rheumatoid arthritis and she says her knees and hand are in agony. She begins to weep and puts her head in her hands. When you approach her, she shouts at you to get away and not to touch her.
Scenario 2 – Lois
It has been some time since Lois Gould (refer to Assessment Task 1, Question 9) had her stroke. Her physical condition has deteriorated further and she cannot use her crutches. She now uses a wheelchair. Her son, Hector, has moved into her home to care for her. You are visiting Lois for the first time in several months, Hector thought he could take care of her but has realised it is not as easy as he thought. You arrive at Lois’s home to find Hector in the driveway, fussing around a brand new luxury car. You know this car would have cost close to $100,000 due to manufacturer name alone! You compliment Hector on the new purchase, silently wondering how he can afford it as he is only working part time at the moment. Hector says he wants to make sure his mother is driven around in the style that she deserves. You go inside and find Lois in her room, looking out the window at the backyard. She looks very tired and appears to have lost some weight since you last saw her. You make some small talk and she says that Hector had some friends over the other night. They were quite loud and kept her awake until 3am. You notice there isn’t a glass of water or a cup of tea in Lois’s room, so you ask her if she would like one. She says yes, a cup of tea would be lovely. When you throw the tea bag in the kitchen bin, you see it is full of cans of alcohol and smells of cigarettes. In fact, the lounge room smells of tobacco and the window is wide open – probably to air the place out. It is quite cold. The fridge is stacked with microwavable meals from the supermarket and pizza boxes. You attend to Lois’s needs but she is hesitant to let you change her clothing – she requests a cardigan but says she is happy to wear to the top she has on already as it is fresh and clean and Hector helped her put it on earlier. As you help her with the cardigan, you catch Lois wincing a couple of times. You notice that her bed is a bit messy and start to make it for her, even though she tries to distract you. The bedsheets are messy and there are stains on them, which look to be food or drink or maybe both. Lois is looking more dejected so you decide to brighten up her spirits and ask her about the new car and how great it must be to travel in such luxury. She looks at you puzzled. ‘I’ve not been out in it. He didn’t even tell me he was going to buy it, he made me sign something last week after I had taken my meds and said it was to get some money from the bank so we can get some new carpet. When he came home with it we had an argument and he told me that I agreed that he should buy the car. I never said that but he told me I must be getting forgetful in my old age. He thinks I could be getting the start of dementia…maybe he did say car and not carpet…I am forgetting things lately, he said I’ve been forgetting my tablets. ‘I don’t go anywhere much anymore. Hector says it’s too hard to get my wheelchair in the chair and I will just slow him down.’ Her eyes tear up. ‘I would love to go sit by the lake and feed the ducks. Jennie next door said she would take me but Hector told her no, it’s not her responsibility to look after me.’ All of sudden Hector comes in and asks you to leave. When you say you are just finishing up, he asks you to hurry as he wants to take Lois out to the local supermarket. You say goodbye to Lois, who looks at you tearfully and avoids looking at her son. As you leave, you do not see any signs of new carpet.

For this task you are required to demonstrate that you have communicated with a range of people in different situations. In this task, communication relates to verbal interactions and written documentation and correspondence, such as emails, memos, letters, notes, reports, client notes and so on.

A template has been provided for you to fill out, which includes questions and/or prompts to guide you in the responses that are required. You can write on the hard copy template provided or you can type out your responses if you feel you may not have enough space or want to write more (a Word file has been provided).

You will need to fill this out over a period of time to ensure you have enough relevant experiences to write about. Your assessor will give you a submission date that allows for this.

Read through each section of the template carefully – you may like to start by taking some notes about your experience so far, and then review your journal at the end of each day to see if you can add new details or finish off a current entry.

There is no word limit for each entry – ensure that you provide as much detail as possible so that your assessor is able to determine that you have met the requirements of the task.

Remember to respect the confidentiality of those you refer to (do not provide names or other personally identifiable information of people discussed in your journal).

To support some of your statements, you are required to provide copies of workplace documents you have completed or contributed to. The journal will indicate where you must provide evidence.

When gathering workplace documents, you will need to do the following;

  • ask your supervisor for permission to use the document in your portfolio
  • take a copy of the document (do not put the original in your portfolio!)
  • ensure privacy and confidentiality of anyone referred to in the documents by blocking out names, addresses and any other identifiable information
  • ask your supervisor to sign each document in your portfolio as confirmation this is your work and they are happy that you have maintained confidentiality of the information within.


What types of service information have you had to provide your clients? Explain how you made sure it was easily understood.
 
How did you ensure you met your workplace’s confidentiality requirements when interacting with clients, their families, your colleagues and others?
 
Explain the lines of authority in the workplace. Submit a copy of the organisation chart. Highlight on it who you report to and who your supervisor reports to.Evidence item approved by supervisor         ¨ Evidence item added to portfolio                 ¨
 
What is your service’s expectations regarding written and verbal communication protocols with colleagues, supervisors, senior management and external service providers? Explain how you ensure you meet these expectations.
 
What potential constraints/difficulties with communication have you encountered that you have reported to your supervisor (or as per service procedures)? In your response, explain: the potential communication issue encountered (that is, what were the signs that told you this could be a problem?)why you felt you needed to report itwhat happened after it was reported. Note that these are not actual communication issues, but situations that you felt could potentially get ‘out of hand’ or cause problems if they weren’t reported.
 
What actual constraints to communication have you encountered as part of your job? Identify at least one and explain: what is washow you addressed/fixed it by communicating effectively any specific communication techniques and strategies you used.
 
Submit one email that you have written to your supervisor that shows you follow workplace communication protocols, use correct terminology, consider lines of authority, and ensure your messaging is clear.Evidence item approved by supervisor         ¨ Evidence item added to portfolio                 ¨
 
Submit one email that you have written to a colleague (or a group of colleagues) that shows you follow workplace communication protocols, use correct terminology, consider lines of authority, and ensure your messaging is clear.Evidence item approved by supervisor         ¨ Evidence item added to portfolio                 ¨
 
Explain your service’s procedures for using digital media. You must include reference to usage of email, the Internet and social media.
 
What ideas have you come up with that you have put forth as potential improvements to work practices or the work environment? This might have occurred during a meeting, during a discussion with your supervisor, as a result of a discussion with a client or their family, etc. Provide an example of at least one improvement.
 
When changes have been made to procedures and work practices, explain how you have helped to promote and role model a positive approach. If you have not  been able to do this (for example, you are on placement and there have been no changes), explain the ways in which you would do so.
 
During your observations at Assessment Task 3, you discussed improvements that you could make to your work performance and professional development opportunities that may be suitable. Have you taken action on any of these areas that required improvement? If yes, explain what you have done. If no, explain what you are planning on doing and by when. If you have evidence of any activities undertaken, please add it to your portfolio. This is not mandatory, however.Evidence item added to portfolio                 ¨

Instructions to the Supervisor

As part of the evidence of competency for this student, we are seeking reports from the student’s workplace supervisor. This forms part of the evidence for the unit CHCCOM005 Communicate and work in health and community services.

What is the purpose of this?

The purpose of this process is to gain confirmation from someone who has worked regularly with the student who can verify that the student performs their skills satisfactorily to workplace requirements on a regular basis.

How will the information I provide be used?

The assessor will use the information you provide in this report, combined with other assessment evidence provided by the student to make a final decision about competency.

How and when do I fill in the report?

You do not need to observe the student over a particular period of time or completing certain tasks. If you place a tick in the ‘Yes’ column in the report, you are confirming that you are comfortable with the student’s skills in the relevant area and that you have seen them work satisfactorily to workplace expectations.

Please also include comments and examples in the space provided wherever possible.

If you do not believe that the student demonstrates appropriate skills in the area listed, please place a tick in the ‘No’ column and provide reasons and comments about why you have said ‘No’. 

If you are unsure or not able to comment on the student’s skills in a particular area, please place a tick in the ‘Not able to confirm’ column.

What should I do if I am unsure of the expectations?

Please contact the student’s assessor if you are unsure of any of the requirements of filling in this Supervisor Report. The student will have their direct contact details.

Who should fill in this report if I am unable to do so?

If you are not able to confirm the student’s skills in all of the following areas, please confirm the areas you can and ask another qualified person from the workplace to confirm skills in the other areas. They will also need to sign the report.

Please fill in the following report.                                                                                                                   

Area/ Skills to be confirmedYes (ü)No (ü)Not able to confirm (ü)Provide examples or comments on student’s skills and performance in this area
Did the student use a range of verbal and non-verbal communication techniques to ensure those they interacted with understood the message being conveyed? For example, this may include adapting communication due to considerations such as culture, age, religious/spiritual beliefs and customs, health status, emotional state, preferred language etc.    
Did the student communicate with others respectfully at all times? For example, this should include showing understanding and sensitivity to any constraints in communication, considering lines of authority and workplace communication protocols, listening to others and not interrupting, etc.     
Did the student adhere to the service’s privacy and confidentiality requirements? For example, this should be shown in both verbal and written communication practices; not discussing confidentiality information where non-authorised personnel may overhear; not sending information via email (according to procedures); not disclosing information without client consent; etc.    
Did the student communicate information with relevant people in a timely manner? For example, this may include passing on messages promptly; dealing with requests from the supervisor or other colleagues in timeframes required; dealing with external service provider or other organisations within timeframes required or given via procedures/interagency protocols; dealing with client requests or needs as soon as is practicable and as per the urgency of the need, etc.    
Did the student listen carefully to those giving instructions, ask for clarification where required and negotiate timeframes? For example, this should include using active listening skills; open questioning; clarifying and confirming statements, etc. Timeframes may need to be negotiated where instructions impact on current workload; where the student feels they may not be able to complete work on time; where they feel they may need more time (for example, they need to work with other services or agencies); or timeframes have not been clear or are conflicting with other information previously provided by someone else etc.     
Did the student show they can correctly use industry terminology when communicating orally and also in written and digital form? Written form may include client progress notes, reports, handwritten notes or memos, messages etc. Digital form may include emails, online forms and records, completing documents on the intranet, etc.    
Did the student show they can communicate in a manner that shows their understanding of the service’s communication protocols and how to communicate as per lines of authority? For example, the student is able to adapt communication style/modes according to whether they are communicating with a colleague, the supervisor, senior management, external service providers, medical professionals etc. Communication protocols may include code of ethics/conduct, workplace communication procedures, etc.     
Did the student demonstrate the ability to identify and report issues that may be potentially difficult or complicated? For example, the student should be able to recognise constraints to communication that could potentially lead to greater issues if not addressed by management. This may relate to conflicts of interest, conduct of colleagues, change in client behaviour or health, issues with external service providers, issues with the client’s family, etc.     
Did the student demonstrate the ability to use effective communication skills to successfully deal with communication constraints? If the student has dealt with conflict situations, please indicate in the comments area how well they dealt with them. The student should be able to adapt communication to suit the constraints. For example, the student may need to organise an interpreter or use visual imagery to support communication; the student may need to find information in the client’s preferred language if English is not their first language; the student may use a range of conflict resolution strategies to calm and defuse clients or colleagues, etc.    
Did the student approach you for assistance when they encountered issues of a legal or ethical nature that may impact the rights of clients, themselves, their colleagues or the service itself? Issues may include potential conflicts of interest, concerns about overstepping boundaries (themselves or a client), difficulties with other colleagues, issues interpreting policies and procedures, concerns with clients (for example, potential abuse, health changes, lack of engagement with current services and support, etc), complaints, etc.    
Did the student demonstrate the ability to complete service documentation and correspondence in line with relevant policies and procedures? This must include being objective, clear and accurate when reporting information. For example, client observations should be made using factual, clear and accurate information. The student’s observations should be non-judgmental, non-biased and not include their opinions. The student should follow system security when completing digital documentation, use pen when handwriting, and avoid statements that may be seen as inflammatory, insensitive etc.    
Did the student follow service policies and procedures when using digital media? Use of digital media will vary according to role, but will include use of email and the service’s intranet or other computerised systems. The student should recognise what information can/cannot be sent via email (for example, some information may need to be communicated via traditional mail or fax), who needs to be copied in on emails, etc. Procedures may also relate to the type of information that needs to be recorded on computerised systems rather than in physical files, what electronic information needs to be archived, what can/cannot be deleted, etc. Digital media can also extend to social media use and use of the Internet.      
Did the student demonstrate the ability to contribute to continuous improvement by suggesting changes to work practices? Changes do not have to be significant, and can be as simple as suggesting ways to be more environmentally sustainable; ways to make the workplace more inviting for clients and staff; based on feedback from clients (such as improving information provided to clients); sharing things they have learned as part of their professional development, etc.     
Did the student promote and role model a positive and responsive attitude to any changes in work practices, processes and/or procedures? Promotion and role modelling may be aimed at colleagues as well as clients and their families, and other service providers.     
Please provide any further comments or observations you have made about the student’s performance in relation to the skills required as above.

Instructions:

You will need to complete this task in your workplace.

You will need to choose two different clients to work with. Talk to your supervisor for advice as to which clients might be appropriate for this task. You must obtain permission from your supervisor and each client to participate in the task – see the permission forms provided at the end of this task.

You will work with your clients and a colleague (or your supervisor if applicable) by going through Parts A–D.

Make two copies of each journal template (see the end of this task) – one for each client.

Note: Please do not identify your clients by name – you should refer to each client as ‘the client’ or ‘Client 1’ and ‘Client 2’ than use their name.

You should conduct this task twice, working with each client separately.

You must get each part of your journals signed by your supervisor before you submit them for assessment.

Part A:  Obtain information about the physical health status of clients

For this part of the task you are required to:

Part B:  Physical health checks

Observe the following physical health checks being performed by a qualified member of staff. The physical health checks will need to be performed on both clients you spoke to in Part A above.

Health checks must include:

  • Temperature
  • Pulse
  • Respiration
  • Blood pressure
  • Bowels opened
  • Client-specific observations as applicable (for example, blood sugar test, visual observation, weight check, check of ankles for swelling, etc).

Make a record of the findings in your journal in the Part B template.

Part C:  Identify variations from normal health

Using the information you have gathered in Part A and Part B, interpret it and answer the two questions in the journal in the Part C template.

Part D:  Gather information to share with others

Based on the health information you gathered during this task for each client, gather some information (fact sheets, brochures, websites etc) that you could potentially give each client to help them maintain good health, and other colleagues in the workplace so they can promote healthy body function.

You may be able to locate good information within your workplace, at the local GP or health centre, on the Internet and so on.

Write down the information you gathered in your journal in the Part D template, and show the information to your supervisor. They will sign Part D of your template to indicate that the information you gathered was relevant to the needs of the client, and it would be suitable to share with others.

ASSESSMENT TASK 4: PROJECT – RISK ASSESSMENT
Task Summary: You are required to complete a WHS risk assessment using the forms provided.

What do I need in order to complete this assessment?

  • Your workplace service’s hazard identification and risk assessment policies and procedures
  • Supporting documents (included in this assessment):
  • Risk Assessment Control Form 
  • Risk Assessment Matrix
  • Consequence Table
  • Hierarchy of Control Table.

When do I do this task?

  • You will do this task in your workplace.
  • Write in the due date as advised by your assessor: _________________________________

what do I need to do if I get something wrong?

If your assessor identifies that you did not complete all parts of each form correctly, you will be asked to fix the parts that are wrong and resubmit.

Instructions:

Read your workplace‘s hazard identification and risk assessment policies and procedures to prepare for this task.

Choose a task you are familiar with at your workplace. For example, you may choose the task of transferring a client to the dining room; providing a personal care activity; providing a client with a hot beverage or assisting people in wheelchairs.

You will need to do a hazard identification and risk assessment for this task.

  1. Use the risk assessment control form and identify at least 5 potential hazards for your chosen work activity or task.
  2. Now use the risk assessment rating matrix and the consequence table to:
  3. consider the consequences of the hazard
  4. consider the likelihood of those consequences occurring
  5. calculate the risk rating.
  6. Enter your risk assessment data in the Risk Assessment Control form and the Hierarchy of Control table.

Think about the following questions when completing the documents:

  • What type of harm or injury could the hazard potentially cause?
  • What is the likelihood of that harm occurring?
  • Are there current controls in place?
  • How effective are these controls?
  • Are workplace procedures being followed?
  • What further controls might be required?
  • How would you put these controls in place?
  • Now add each of your recommendations into the Hierarchy of Control table. You may double up on some of the hierarchy levels.  An example has been completed for you as a guide.

RISK ASSESSMENT RATING MATRIX

Use this table to determine the current risk for each identified hazard.

 LIKELIHOOD
Rare
The event will only occur in exceptional circumstances
Unlikely
The event is not likely to occur in a year
Possible
The event may occur within a year
Likely
The event is likely to occur within a year
Almost certain
The event is almost certain to occur within a year

RISK LEVELS

Resolution at each level involves reducing the risk level to a lower level of risk

  • Extreme – requires immediate assessment with management consideration. A detailed plan, regular monitoring and reporting is required with a target resolution within 1 month timeframe
  • High – requires immediate assessment with senior staff consideration, planning and reporting. Target resolution should ideally be within 3 months
  • Medium – reviewing of existing controls and planning required. Resolution timeframe should be within 1 year

Low – the risk may be tolerable and controlled if managed with high quality process and procedures

CONSEQUENCE TABLE

Use the following matrix to rate the consequence of each identified hazard. Where a hazard could have multiple consequences (for example, injury and financial cost) the highest consequence should be selected.
