Nursing and Clinical Care
The Clinical Care Consultants at StGiles can provide a range of nursing services to children and adults of all ages.
Nursing services aim to maintain or improve the health and wellbeing of individuals by using a person-centered approach in the development, implementation and facilitation of care plans.

Continence Clinic: All ages with continence issues, helping adults and children become more confident with toileting, more independent, prescribing appropriate continence aids. We can conduct bladder scans and write reports for schools, doctors and the NDIS.
Complex Care Plans: For NDIS participants who require invasive tasks to be completed by credentialed support staff, we can research and write a complex care plan. Complex care plans are an NDIS requirement for credentialing of support staff if participants require assistance with care such as PEG feeds, midazolam administration for seizures, bowel care, or catheter care.
Theory Training for Complex Care Requirements: Participants who require complex care supports completed by support staff require training. Clinical Care can provide a quote for the delivery of theory training, which can be delivered to small groups of staff and is individualised to include information specific to the participant.
Credentialing: Clinical Care nurses spend time with support staff to assess their competence to deliver complex care supports to participants. The credentialing is valid for 12 months. All support staff assisting with enteral feeds, midazolam for seizures, bowel care procedures, and catheter care will require credentialing to assist participants with these supports.
Training Services for Organisations
First Aid Training: Delivered in partnership with National First aid Training Institute (NFTI), a Registered Training Organisation (RTO), our First Aid is presented by nurses who hold a TAE. The nurses all have extensive medical and healthcare knowledge resulting in knowledgeable and fun filled First Aid classes.
CPR Training: Also delivered in partnership with NFTI, CPR is a nationally recognised unit with students receiving a certificate from NFTI that is valid for 1 year upon successful completion.
Medication Skill Set Training: Delivered in partnership with Smart Nation, an external RTO, our Medication Skill set comprises of two units of competence; Healthy Bodies and Assist Clients with Medications. Both units are delivered on the same day.
3 Yearly Medication Training: This is not a nationally recognised unit of competence but is a requirement of maintaining the Assist Clients with Medications unit. This 2 hour information session provides students with a certificate of attendance to demonstrate that they have completed the relevant compulsory personal development (CPD) to maintain their certification.
Annual Medication Training: The Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) medication management framework recommends that all staff who hold Assist Clients with Mediations complete an annual medication update. The session is changed each year to reflect the issues that have been most prevalent in the past year across the service to remain relevant.
Soft Skill Training: To inform staff, carers and families across the disability sector, these training packages are between 1 and 2 hours in duration.
