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
This resource will help you to implement one of the key guideline recommendations – that older people with social care needs and multiple long-term conditions have a ‘single, named care coordinator who acts as their first point of contact’. Drawing on the discussions from 3 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.
NICE held a roundtable event in January 2016 to identify how the guideline can be used. This report summarises the discussion, and sets out practical examples and ideas to implement best practice. You can use the report to see how others are implementing the guideline and to get ideas for how you might use the guideline to improve local practice..
Both resources were developed the NICE Collaborating Centre for Social Care (NCCSC), a partnership led by SCIE.
