Abstract

Background Information about the Programme

During 2016/17, Care England, with funding from the Department of Health, co-ordinated an exciting pilot programme to explore and develop the concept of Teaching Care Homes i.e. centres of excellence in person-centred care where learning and innovation is a continuous process (see: http://www.careengland.org.uk/teaching-care-home-pilot). These centres of excellence are acknowledged as supportive places for staff to work, where they feel valued and confident to take responsibility for care and innovation. The homes offer a positive and meaningful learning environment for students and staff. Most importantly, residents and families experience effective, compassionate and safe care that is centred on their needs.

The pilot has realised a number of key outcomes including improvements in care and services and increased commitment to learning for all. It has also raised the profile of long-term care as a career choice that is exciting, challenging, rewarding and forward thinking. This is a vital part of addressing the issues of recruitment and retention of registered nursing and other care workforce, which has significant cost saving implications.

Using the learning from the pilot programme, Care England was successful in securing continued funding from the Burdett Trust for Nursing to spread and extend Teaching Care Homes across England. Over a two-year period, and in partnership with the Foundation of Nursing Studies (FoNS), this programme will support the development of a further ten homes (five home in 2018/19 and a further five homes in 2019/20).

Working together, the five homes engaged in the programme during 2018/2019 decided to explore and develop activity around three interlinked priority areas: inspiring others, cross-sector and interprofessional working, and intergenerational working and engagement. They are working creatively within their homes, but also with partners in the community, education and health to enhance care experiences and learning and development opportunities (see: https://www.fons.org/programmes/teaching-care-homes). This activity is exemplifying the ways in which nurse-led care home teams can be leaders and facilitators of exciting innovations.

With this in mind, moving into the second year of the partnership with the Burdett Trust for Nursing, Care England and FoNS want to offer five nurse-led care home teams the opportunity to lead and facilitate a tangible and realistic cross-sector collaboration that will enhance care experiences and outcomes and/or learning and development opportunities. The programme is only open to care homes in England.
