This CD contains a comprehensive training package which is intended to support overseas qualified
nurses as they adapt to working in the Australian dementia care setting. The package includes
information and worksheets for facility managers, an online program for overseas qualified nurses
and training resources aimed at staff working alongside overseas qualified nurses and other staff
from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds.

Supporting overseas qualified nurses
working in dementia care - June 2012
The program uses a web site structure to display the content with the Top Menu linking to each major
Section. Then, there is a Drop-down Menu linking to the Topics within each Section and, where the
Topic is divided into Sub-Topics, a Side Menu is used. A page-by-page progression through the program is
achieved by using the Next and Previous links at the bottom of each page.
This program was developed on behalf of the NSW/ACT Dementia Training Study Centre at the
University of Wollongong. Full details about the programs author, graphic-web designer and other
contributors are given on the Acknowledgement Page; access via the Top Menu.
In designing the program interface the objective has been to utilise readily available web based
technology rather than relying on propriety based software or specalised browser plug-ins. To achieve
this objective and at the same time create a modern and engaging interface, certain computer system
specifications will be required to ensure that all the contained features work.
