“Staff and leaders can’t work any harder; the answer must be to work more collaboratively, not just between sectors but between agencies and professionals, supported and incentivised by the national health and care organisations.” – Sir David Behan, Chief Executive, Care Quality Commission
The Care Quality Commission’s recently published “State of Care” report praised services for maintaining quality when the health and social care system is at full stretch. However, it reiterated that the adult social care sector in particular remained in a precarious position. CQC chief executive Sir David Behan stated that better coordination of care was the only long-term solution.
Salford Professional Development’s third annual Care Homes Conference is ideally timed to help you to develop workable strategies to improve the quality of life, healthcare and health planning for people living in care homes. With a focus on collaboration and coordination across care providers, including in-depth sessions covering the Enhanced Health in Care Homes vanguards and lessons learned to date, as well as examples of outstanding care in practice, you will have the opportunity to question, discuss and debate the very latest policies, projects and emerging models of care, as well as sharing your own stories and experiences with the conference and contributing to wider thinking about the future of care.
Topics to be covered at this year’s event include:
- Improving the quality of life, healthcare and health planning for people living in care homes
- What does outstanding care look like?
- Implications for care homes in interpreting and applying dementia-friendly design principles
- Delivering dementia-friendly environments
- Using assistive technology to deliver quality care
- Assessing the safety culture in care homes
- Improving safeguarding outcomes
- Developing care homes as placements for student nurses
Join us for the Care Homes Conference 2017 where leading experts in health and social care will explain how the sector can overcome some of its biggest challenges. Learn from the new models of care being trialled in the vanguard sites, and understand how different agencies and organisations can work better together to deliver a sustainable service.
