Abstract

Health and social care staff from a wide range of professions and organisations are involved in the care of older care home residents. In order to ensure seamless, quality care for the care home population, it is essential that the whole workforce is highly competent and appropriately skilled in the care of older people. Newcastle Gateshead Clinical Commissioning Group commissioned Northumbria University to develop a workforce competency framework for enhanced health in care homes that is standardised and integrated, specific to the needs of residents, and cover the whole workforce from those providing essential care to specialist and advanced level practice.
