RCN Foundation Care Homes Summit 2019

23 Sep 2019

Royal College of Nursing, 20 Cavendish Square, Marylebone, London, W1G 0RN


With nearly half a million older people living in nursing and residential homes within the UK, the independent care sector employs over 40,000 registered nurses.

This is a sector beset by challenges, including high rates of nursing vacancies and turnover, increasing fragility within the sector, no defined career pathway and no specific training requirements. Yet working within such a demanding setting has meant that nurses are developing innovation, interesting new experiences and different ways of working.

Over the past five years, the RCN Foundation has sought to focus on these issues by implementing a grant programme aimed at supporting and strengthening nursing, and improving patient care, within the care home sector.  

This summit will explore and highlight the many ways that the nursing team continues to achieve excellent outcomes for residents within care homes.

 View the programme here. Please note this is subject to change and a final programme will be given to you on the day.
