Basic Health Observation Governance for Care Managers

13 December - 9:30 am - 2:00 pm

Fully funded

HCPA are delivering two courses to offer education in basic health observations based on the Restore 2 tool. Basic health observations are measurements taken to monitor the health of individuals such as blood pressure, heart rate or temperature. The Restore 2 tool is a framework that care professionals can work against to ensure a structured response to the unwell resident. There will be separate courses for care managers and care staff. This will enable care homes to identify early identification of deterioration which will enable them to maintain good outcomes for their residents, work with their MDT and improve appropriate hospital admissions.

Learning outcomes:

  • To be confident and proficient using the Restore 2 tool, including taking basic health observations, recognising soft signs, calculating a NEWS2 score, completing an SBARD report and utilising the Hertfordshire Escalation tool to provide an appropriate response to the acutely unwell person
  • To be able to cascade basic knowledge about health observations to other care professionals using the Restore 2 implementation framework
  • To use the knowledge gained in this session to improve relationships with healthcare professionals, integrate care homes as part of a wider MDT and improve outcomes for service users
  • To implement the governance processes of Basic Health Observations including policies, processes, auditing and staff competence checks in care providers. To utilise the basic health observations toolkit and implement the governance assurance checklist in maintaining high quality care.

Requirements: Prior to commencement of the course, you will be sent an assurance checklist and quality toolkit around the implementation of basic health observations in your care homes. Please read through this and consider where your provider sits in the framework prior to attending this course. By attending this course, you are committing to embedding and implementing the Restore 2 tool throughout your care provider. Learners will be expected to be engaged in learning, participate in all activities including group discussions, share their own experiences of working in the care sector, whilst respecting confidentiality, and to share best practice examples
