Supporting our members who work in care homes
The RCN is committed to supporting our members who work in care homes. On this page you can find information and resources to assist you in providing high quality care to residents.
The aim is to provide up-to-date professional guidance to help you think about practice issues, including end of life care, legal reporting and sexual intimacy.
This new course has been designed to support the delivery of dignified end of life care and help nursing staff recognise the needs of people who are dying and their families.
The bitesize online resources allow staff to learn flexibly and can be revisited for future reflection. They include podcasts by experts who discuss how to recognise, communicate, support and plan effective end of life care.
The RCN Scotland Learning & Development Team are offering two free online awareness sessions on accountability & delegation, record keeping and using social media for staff working in care homes. These will take place on:
8th September 10am-11am
17th September 3-4pm
(Please note, places are limited so please book early to avoid disappointment.)
