Following consultation it was decided to pilot a social care managers forum. The first event was at the Loughshore Hotel, Carrickfergus in September and the second at the Silverbirch Hotel, Omagh in October. The programme included inputs from NISCC on registration and an introduction to Fitness to Practise. Further inputs included Anne McAllister from the NI Adult Safe Guarding Partnership on Adult Safe Guarding Operational Procedures and Audrey Murphy from RQIA on quality and improvement. Table discussion identified ideas regarding progressing the forum and some managers offered to be involved in short pieces of work in NISCC which related to social care.
Feedback indicated managers valued spending time together and they identified a range of issues they would like to hear about. We hope to have our next forum in Spring 17 – events information will be share with everyone through email and e news. Information and dates of all NISCC events can be found on our website http://www.niscc.info/events
We hope you all get the opportunity to join us when we are out and about in 2017!
