Working in the Healthcare System in Australia

2017-07-03

3 Key Health Professions Explained: Enrolled Nurse, Personal Care Assistant, Pathology Collector

With such a sizeable healthcare system in this country, qualified health professionals are essential to keep the healthcare system running smoothly. We shed some light on three important health professions, compare the core differences within each role and explain how you can be part of this industry.

Many may not know that in Australia, one of the most sought-after and a highly-employable professions is a Personal Care Assistant or Care Worker in the aged care system. Employment statistics from the Department of Employment indicate that 87,800 persons were employed in Personal Care Worker/Nursing Support positions in 2015 and employment is expected to grow strongly to 2020.^

Care Workers provide direct care and support to the ageing population, assisting them with daily activities and tasks, in a residential aged care facility or home/community based setting. Care Workers also enjoy the fact that they can often select part-time or full-time work to suit their particular lifestyles. Your first step in becoming a Care Worker is to obtain a suitable qualification and the CHC33015 Certificate III in Individual Support is the current industry standard that employers look for.

Pathology Collectors on the other hand, work in an environment with no direct patient care, and generally work within business hours. They are usually based in pathology collection centres or pathology labs within General Practice or hospitals. Pathology collection involves taking blood and other specimens for testing, and performing electrocardiographs (ECG's).

Pathology is often referred to as the engine room of healthcare - results from pathology tests give doctors the information they need to correctly diagnose and treat patients. To highlight the importance of pathology, 500 million tests are done in Australia every year and 70% of medical decisions rely on pathology!* If you’re interested, a HLT37215 Certificate III in Pathology Collection qualification will give you a good start in this sector.

Nursing is of course, a well-known global profession and in Australia, a diploma level qualification is the minimum requirement to become an Enrolled Nurse – HLT54115 Diploma of Nursing. It usually involves a slightly longer study period in comparison to the professions mentioned in this article, but by choosing to become a Nurse, you are positioning yourself in a large sector of the industry, with Nurses required in a vast range of healthcare settings. Furthermore, the potential career pathway within Nursing is truly diverse and you will have wide-ranging choices in the future.

If you’re on the lookout for new career opportunities and you’ve thought about healthcare as a possibility, but you’re not quite sure where to begin, contact Care Training Australia Pty Ltd (CTA, RTO No. 5052) to seek assistance. CTA is a registered training organisation based in South East Melbourne with over 25 years’ experience, and a well-known reputation for providing a supportive learning environment for its students.

A Caring Role in a Rapidly Growing Industry - How an Individual Support qualification can change your life

2017-06-08

The importance of Personal Care Assistants in the aged care system in Australia

Many of us have direct family members or loved ones who are older or ageing. At some point we may be faced with the challenge of having to arrange additional care or support to assist our family members or loved ones in their day-to-day lives.

Did you know that here in Australia, there is an well-structured process in place to support the ageing members of our community to transition into an aged care system? We have access to numerous kinds of services at different care levels. This includes support at home and support in residential aged care facilities that cater for low, high and dementia care needs.

It is a large sector that requires a significant labour force. Qualified Personal Care Assistants are in high demand to fill positions of direct care and support within all areas of aged care. In 2015, 87,800 persons were employed in Personal Care Worker/Nursing Support positions, and looking forward, job openings to 2020 is expected to grow strongly.*

Many workers in this sector also enjoy the fact that they can choose to work part-time or full-time, to suit their particular lifestyles.

The CHC33015 Certificate III in Individual Support is a qualification that will help you stand out when you seek employment, as it is a qualification that employers look favorably upon when they appoint Personal Care Assistants.
