Overview

The establishment of Ren Ci Learning Academy (RCLA) seeks to upskill the community’s capabilities to better care for the elderly. It will be at the forefront to drive the innovation and redesign of care to deliver and spread value-based and affordable care for the elderly.

One of the focuses of RCLA is the cross-training and transdisciplinary model of care for Allied Health professionals (AHP). With the added skillsets, AHP will be equipped to conduct simple sessions independently to reduce the number of touch points that an elderly goes through in the healthcare system. Training programme that facilitates skills transfer between therapist and care staff and also advanced training for therapy support staff to perform higher skilled assessments and interventions in the community will also be developed.

RCLA is conceptualised to be a modern and interactive learning space. Participants will find walls that can be doodled with interactive projector at the newly renovated training centre.
