Informing leadership in health and care

Informing leadership in health and care

Legislation, policies and procedures in health and social care are essential to protect the people you provide care and support for and to ensure your staff team are working safely and in accordance with best practice, regulations and the law. Compared to other sectors this information is extensive and as the complexity of care or support increases so does the  amount of legislation and numbers of policies and procedures too. As a manager of services and leader in the system it is essential that you have an up to date and working knowledge and understanding of the legislation, policies and procedures that keep social care and everyone in it safe and well.

Shaping the future of care for older people

Have your say

Moves into and between care provision and settings are significant life events for many older people, which can affect the well-being of both the person and their family carers.

East Sussex County Council, University of Kent, University College London and partners, including many care and support-experienced older people and their carers have worked together on a co-production project to consider how best to support older people through life changes. This is called ‘Better Care Moves for Older People’.

They are offering a webinar to talk about their research, showcase initial findings and engage participants in discussions around how to use their toolkit and perhaps how to get involved in future research projects.

So, if you would you like to be a part of the development of evidence-informed practice and hear about social care practitioners’ involvement in adult social care research, the webinar is on 21 September and runs from 2:00pm to 3:30pm

Trauma informed language guidance

This document is to be considered as
guidance which supports conversations about language. It is not exhaustive by any means. It is a tool,
a thinking place, an opened door into moving towards trauma informed settings, services
and systems. It is an invitation to develop deeper awareness around stigmatisation,
understanding that when we change the language, we change how we see the world.
