RCN Scotland is starting a conversation with members and stakeholders about what the future will look like for care homes, and what the role of nursing will be in that future.
This paper has been developed with RCN Scotland members working strategically in the care home sector and integration authorities. It sets out some thinking from a professional nursing perspective on what needs to be in place to ensure high quality registered nursing care can be provided in care homes.
Thinking about care homes in integrated health and social care is new for RCN Scotland, as it is for all professionals and organisations working in health and social care. RCN Scotland would like to know what you think about the issues raised in the paper and what should be the priorities for leaders in health and social care, including the care home sector.
If you’re interested in being part of the conversation, please contact Alice Gentle, Policy Officer, at firstname.lastname@example.org
