The Transition to Care Home Nursing Resource was launched on Monday 29th January 2018.
The new resource, written by Queen’s Nurse Sharon Aldridge-Bent with input from an external review group of nurses and professionals who work in or have responsibilities for residents in the care home setting, is structured into ten chapters. There are specific chapters on subjects such as the fundamentals of nursing care, safe working and regulation, adults at risk, dementia care, building relationships with family, and career development.
The resource is intended for registered nurses who may have overall responsibility for nursing within the care home environment, as well as educators, students, and unregistered carers who work in this setting. As with its other Transition resources, the QNI recommends that the Transition to Care Home Nursing is used with the support of an experienced mentor.
