SCIE (social care institute for excellence) and NICE (National Institute for Health and Social Care Excellence) have jointly produced a quick guide to ‘Moving between Hopsital and Home’ for home support and care home managers. Quick guides, developed jointly by NICE and SCIE, are based on NICE guidelines and quality standards.
The Guide can be downloaded from the SCIE website here: https://www.scie.org.uk/publications/ataglance/moving-hospital-home.asp
The guide includes:
- What you can do to ensure successful transitions
- What you can expect from your local hospital team
- What you should expect after discharge
- Further information
We would also encourage you to sign up to receive SCIE updates here: https://www.scie.org.uk/myscie/register so you can receive all of the updates from SCIE, access their resources and look at their e-learning courses.
