Developing Effective Care Plans in Care Homes

Thu, 26 Sep 2024

Virtual, Online

One of the most important aspects of safe and effective care is the care planning process. Sadly, this in one of the common areas of non-compliance. The consequences of this can be devastating for people receiving care and for care providers.

This masterclass has been designed to provide tools, hints and tips on how to develop effective care and support plans. The masterclass will cover legislation and guidance together with best practice (and poor practice). There is a clear focus on involving people in the care planning process, making care plans truly persons centred and using outcomes tools to measure the effectiveness of the care provided.

This masterclass will cover electronic care plans and paper-based care plans and look at the issues that these can present. The masterclass will also cover the effective linking of care plans and risk assessments and will look at areas of great and not so great practice in this respect.

Who should attend? Those who work in adult social care at Provider, Responsible Individual, Registered Manager, Deputy Manager and Team Leader level.

This masterclass will enable you to:

  • Understand the legislation and guidance

  • Define the purpose of care plans

  • Develop truly effective care plans

  • Learn how to develop person centred outcomes with people

  • Address the challenges of including people in their care and ensuring that everybody has a voice

  • Link care plans to risk assessments and vice versa

  • Review care plans on a reactive and planned basis

  • Evaluate the effectiveness of your care plan system
