Investing in professional development for care home managers, nursing and care home staff is essential in order to increase confidence and proficiency of people caring for care home residents, particularly those with complex needs.
Care practitioners should be trained in competencies such as wounds management, nutrition and falls; and all staff should be offered training in other complex conditions, such as dementia and end-of-life care.
The Enhanced Health in Care Homes programme team have been working in partnership with NELFT NHS Foundation Trust (NELFT), UCLPartners and NHS Digital to support the delivery of train the trainer sessions for Significant 7+, What’s best for Lily?, Data Security & Protection Toolkit and NHSmail.
The below pages include resources and information that can be used as part of in house training within care homes or as general guidance.
