    Abstract


    A step by step guide for aged care services implementing the Aged Care Clinical Mentor

    Model of Change.

    The Aged Care Clinical Mentor Model of Change guide has two applications:

    1. Enabling an aged care service to implement a sustainable Clinical Mentor workforce role, and

    2. Enabling an Aged Care Clinical Mentor to implement a Model of Change to achieve best practice.

    Developed by the Clinical Mentoring: From Evidence-Base to Outcomes for Older People project during
    2012-14, this guide is a learning and development tool for use in community and residential aged
    care services.

    Funded by the Australian Government Department of Health and Ageing (now Social Services) under the Encouraging Best Practice in Aged Care (EBPAC) program, the project was led by Resthaven Incorporated, a South Australian not for profit aged care service provider.

    The model provides proven benefits to residents, clients and staff of aged care services.

    It informs the development of a new role: that of Aged Care Clinical Mentor. It also informs the Aged Care Clinical Mentor’s change management approach to enabling best practice.
