This activity is not relevant to my scope as a health care worker, and is an area of my practice related to a past problem/incident since... This reading covered the topic of aged care . It provided me with new knowledge, and will help me maintain my mandatory competency.

Sometimes I find it really hard to make time for my learning, but I was blown away by how easy it is with the Ausmed app. I can fit it in during breaks or on the bus to work.
