Q&A session: Care homes & COVID-19
This event is hosted exclusively for care home staff and domiciliary care staff in South West England.
In order to support communication between primary care and care homes, the South West Academic Health Science Network (SW AHSN) is hosting a weekly online Q&A session between care providers and a locally based GP.
These facilitated sessions provide a forum to have questions answered on a variety of topics including RESTORE2™, RESTORE2™ mini, resident deterioration and COVID-19.
If you work in a care home or are a domiciliary worker and would like to receive details on how to join these sessions, or if you have any questions about the training, please do not hesitate to contact the South West Patient Safety Collaborative by emailing email@example.com.
Recognising when a resident’s health is deteriorating is important, particularly at this critical time. Together the SW AHSN, local NHS clinical commissioning groups, county councils, and NHS hospital trusts are working to enhance the confidence of care home staff in detecting and appropriately escalating deteriorating residents. We are also seeking to improve communication between care homes and your serving GP practices to help reduce admissions where inappropriate. For more information and resources see the deteriorating patient page of the SWAHSN website.
