New NICE resources published to support work with older people
NICE has published two new resources to support the implementation of the guideline on Older people with social care needs and multiple long-term conditions.
Both resources were developed by the NICE Collaborating Centre for Social Care (NCCSC), a partnership led by SCIE and supported by RiPfA.
This resource supports implementation of one of the key guideline recommendations - that older people with social care needs and multiple long-term conditions have a ‘single, named care co-ordinator who acts as their first point of contact’. Drawing on the discussions from three focus groups facilitated by Age UK Sutton, which involved older people living in their own homes and in a care home, it presents the expectations that older people have of this role.
Tailored resource - ‘Just one person’: the named care coordinator role from the perspective of older people.
NICE held a roundtable event in January 2016 to identify how the guideline can be used. This report summarises the discussion, explores how others are implementing the guideline and sets out practical examples and ideas to improve local practice.
