Ulster University Magee campus

This free event will provide an overview of a range of practice development initiatives that have been introduced in nursing and residential homes as part of a Knowledge Transfer Scheme funded by the HSC R&D Division, Public Health Agency, IHCP, Ulster Garden Villages Ltd and AgeNI. The conference is targeted at health and social care practitioners across a range of sectors who are interested in improving quality of life for residents, relatives and staff in nursing and residential homes. The conference will focus on four key themes: facilitating a positive transition for residents and relatives; maintaining dignity and identity; sharing decision making and creating and maintaining community links. Delegates will also have an opportunity to hear more about ‘My Home Life (MHL)’, a UK wide initiative that promotes quality of life and delivers positive change in care homes for older people
