Raising the Standards: older people’s care and human rights
10am – 3pm, Wednesday 29 November 2017
Renfield Centre, Bath St, Glasgow
In June 2017 the Scottish Government published the new Health and Social Care Standards. The Standards set out what people should expect when using health, social care or social work services in Scotland. They seek to provide better outcomes for everyone; to ensure that individuals are treated with respect and dignity, and that the basic human rights we are all entitled to are upheld.
The new Standards will be implemented from April 2018, initially in care homes for adults.
This free conference is an opportunity to explore the issues of embedding the new Standards and a human rights based approach into the practical delivery of care services. It will combine a mixture of presentations and workshops to enable participants to get the best from the day.
The event will also see the launch of a new fund for care homes, aimed at making rights real for people with dementia living in care homes. Scottish Care is delighted to be partnering in this fund with Life Changes Trust.
This is your opportunity to find out all you need to know about the new Standards, human rights and Self-directed Support and what they mean for your care provision.
