Description

'Person-centred care in care homes – what are the outcomes that really matter?

‘Person-centred’ (or relationship-centred) care is considered to be both the aim of care provided in care homes, and the indication that good quality care has been provided. It is often talked about in guidelines, policies, and academic articles, but what is ‘person-centred care’ and what does it look like in practice?

A recent study by Cardiff University found that the top research priority for care home staff was how person-centred care can be provided in care homes that is appropriate to the person's individualised needs. Following the study, an exciting partnership has been formed between Cardiff University and Linc Care to explore person-centred care in practice. We are inviting all those who have an interest in the care of older people with complex needs to join us at this event, and to help contribute to this project.

Our interactive one-day workshop event brings together a wide range of stakeholders to explore: what person-centred care looks like in practice, what the outcomes are that really matter to those receiving care, and what is in the way of achieving person-centred care.

The event is open to care home staff, care providers, researchers, clinicians/practitioners, third sector organisations, and representatives from health, policy and inspectorate teams. Older people and family members/ supporters of older people are especially welcome.

This unique event will be an opportunity to share your experiences of care in care homes, hear about others’ experiences, and help generate consensus about what person-centred care actually is, and how we can provide the care that really matters to those who receive it.

Interactive activities will be used during the workshop, including visual notes to capture the ideas generated during the day, online voting to help identify which are the most important ideas, and a video booth to share your thoughts and experiences. We will also have a photographer to capture memories of the day.
