Training events, webinars and support lines:
All care homes are invited to attend the 3-4 weekly GSF support meetings
These meeting are similar to Hospice UK ECHO in style and are NOT just for those who have had specific GSF training or gained accreditation.
Just a reminder to say that our next GSF Support Call for Care Homes will be next Wednesday 1st July at 10.30-11.45, and will continue every 3 weeks.
This call will feature the thoughts and learning from Jo Hockley, Nurse Consultant Edinburgh University, who has a special passion for this work and great experience in supporting care homes, and who leads very interesting work with care homes on Reflective Debriefing for teams, which is proving especially helpful during this pandemic. Not to be missed! We will include our GP Clinical Associates and other speakers as needed, but the main focus is to be able to hear your reflections during this very tough time, offer support and guidance as needed and share examples of good practice .
