DAY 1 - 6 November


The Dignity Champions Model

Jan Burns MBE,  Chair, National Dignity Council

What is our dignity model? Who are we – what do we do?  How do we do it?  Why do we do it?  You will have the opportunity to share your perceptions on a definition for the term dignity. What does it mean on paper and what does it mean in practice? We will share thoughts and opinions whilst analysing a range of case studies to determine whether you think dignity has or has not been put into practice. Furthermore, we will discuss the role of a dignity champion what is it and how can it impact on the quality of care being delivered and meet the CQC Key lines of enquiry, ‘Safe. Caring, Effective, Responsive, Well led services’. Finally there will be time to consider what does this mean to me and my work setting.

 

Learning Disability and Dementia: Timely Diagnosis

Sarah Ormston, Specialist Health Advisor and Dementia Project Manager, MacIntyre

Getting a diagnosis of dementia can be a struggle for anyone but for someone with a learning disability there are even more barriers to overcome. If the person does not have the insight or communication skills to let the people around them know that they are experiencing difficulties or changes, they will be increasingly reliant on others to notice the changes themselves, which can often be subtle and difficult to spot. Once the changes have been noted, they may still be explained as being a consequence of the person’s learning disability or other pre-existing health condition. The session will explore these challenges and how the risk of diagnostic overshadowing can be overcome.

 

Nurse Revalidation

Jo Blackburn, Care Quality Director & Ruth Treharne, Practice Development Nurse, The Orders of St John Care Trust

It’s natural to feel concerned about revalidation, but it is also the perfect opportunity for nurses, across all settings, to celebrate their significant contribution to nursing. Sounds simple doesn’t it, but despite initial reports saying how easy nurses were finding the revalidation process, many within OSJCT were anxious believing it to be complicated and onerous. The challenge was to encourage our nurses to put down on paper their day to day reflections, their learning and the way it informed their nursing practice. During this workshop we will reflect on our learning and engage with delegates to share experiences and best practice examples.
