10.30am – 11.00am: Social care recovery: accentuating humanity
Dr. Donald Macaskill, CEO, Scottish Care
This presentation will reflect on the experience of the social care sector in Scotland during the pandemic before exploring what are the current challenges facing care homes and homecare services. It will argue that there is a real potential to build back better in social care providing the sector is given the tools to do the job and the trust to be innovative and autonomous.
11.30am – 12.00pm: How do you grade your service? Can you evidence six star provision?
Senga Currie, Head of Care Development (Scotland), QCS
Most providers deliver a great service however, their gradings are heavily influenced on what is seen on the day, and what is recorded. Some individuals are better than others at organising and evidencing what occurs in day to day life. This seminar will help providers maximise their quality assurance process, give examples of how to demonstrate continuous improvement resulting in better outcomes for the users and demonstrating not just compliance but excellence to the regulator.
12.45pm – 1.15pm: Advanced Care Planning for Dementia
Gayle Henry, Senior Dementia Consultant, Dementia Service Development Centre (DSDC) University of Stirling
Advance Care Planning can be an open and honest conversation with a trusted individual or professional or completing ACP documents. Documentation is preferred, it encourages open conversation and information sharing, reducing ambiguity and more likely to be followed. Documenting expectations reduces carer burden, family stress and guilt by having input from the individual also offering opportunities to resolve interpersonal differences contributing to a comfortable end of life experience.
2.00pm – 2.30pm: Working Together
Linda Kemp, Service Manager – Adult services, Care Inspectorate
Working in partnership with Scotland’s care providers to drive improvement. The Care Inspectorate’s new quality frameworks promote self-evaluation and focus on the outcomes for people who use care services.
