Best Practice in the Care Home Sector

Main Sponsor

Caring Times is delighted that our new conference was held at the MAC Theatre, Birmingham on 20th September 2017 to great reception. The conference was designed to highlight the excellent practice which is happening day in and day out in the care home sector.

The purpose of this was two-fold:

• To provide a ‘live-theatre’ experience which informs, challenges, teaches and enthuses care staff to learn from those providing the best care so that as many as possible can return to their workplaces and put into practice what they have learnt
• To start highlighting, documenting and broadcasting (by word of mouth, digitally and in print) the evidence which is needed to show to stakeholders such as the regulators, commissioners, the consumer and the media that the sector provides high quality, innovative care in so many settings.
