At this launch event, we'll be discussing how the programme will support colleagues across registered care homes, with opportunities for delegates to ask questions ahead of participating in the programme.

Starting 28 March 2018, the Leading for Safety and Quality in Care Homes Programme has been designed and developed with Registered Care Home Managers in mind, and will consist of three formal learning events, with additional action learning sessions for groups in between, depending on the availability of delegate and venues.

The event is ideal for members across commissioning who are responsible for care home services, such as Quality Leads, Safety Leads and Lead Nurses.We are also welcoming Registered Care Home owners and managers to attend, and commissioners are encouraged to invite any they feel may be interested in this programme.
