What is the Clinical Practice Education Project?
The Clinical Practice Education Project is a totally new training and mentoring project set up as a collaboration between Partners in Care and NHS Shropshire/Telford & Wrekin. We are currently working with 20 care homes across Shropshire. The project was evaluated in July/August 2023.
“To build the confidence and skills of care home staff in preventing and managing medical/health conditions that are common in older people, and sometimes result in admission to hospital.”
Why was the project developed?
The project was developed with the aim of reducing admissions to hospital from care homes, focusing on hydration, urinary tract infections and falls. We are offering a package of training and mentoring based on the specific needs of the staff within the target homes.
What is the training approach?
The Clinical Practice Education Project uses a ‘whole home approach’, encouraging as many staff in each home as possible to attend each training session.
