1
Challenges for Care Homes vEOLC
  • by
  • Veronica Ollive
  • Specialist Nurse Safeguarding Vulnerable Adults
  • Nurse Adviser Care Homes
  • NHS West Kent

2
End of Life Care
  • How people die remains in the memory of those
    who live on
  • Dame Cicely Saunders (2008)
  • Founder of the Modern Hospice Movement

3
Background Information relating to CSCI
  • The Terminal Illness (TI) category was set up
    under the Registered Homes Act 1984 and the
    category describes Palliative care, however

4
Background information (contd)
  • It was considered that Palliative Care should
    be available in all care homes, looking at
  • Holistic Care
  • Palliative care needs and training
  • Support and resources
  • (National Minimum Standards Standard 4)

5
What is Terminal Care?
  • Terminal Care was used to describe the care
    provided to residents/patients who had a terminal
    illness that could not be cured

6
What is Palliative Care?
  • In 2002 the World Health Organisation
    described palliative care as
  • the active holistic care of patients with
    advanced progressive illness.the goal of
    palliative care is the best quality of life for
    patients and their families..

7
What has replaced the TI category?
  • Care Homes being able to provide Palliative
    Care as part of their holistic care, reducing the
    risk of residents being transferred at a
    difficult time
  • (think about the consequences this will have on
    the residents/families)

8
E.O.L.C
  • Looks at
  • The Gold Standard Framework
  • The Liverpool Care Pathway (LCP)
  • Preferred Priorities for Care

9
What are MY challenges in promoting EOLC in Care
Homes?
  • Not being employed by the Care Homes directly,
    therefore what impact my role has on advanced
    clinicians in order to promote good practice

10
2.Getting started!
  • Introducing care homes to the Liverpool Care
    Pathway (LCP) a national project.
  • Encouraging Care Homes to register with the
    Marie Curie Palliative Care institute Liverpool

11
3.Retrospective Base Reviews
  • Supporting care homes to complete this review
  • TIME factor!

12
4.LCP Document
  • Supporting care homes to look at the document
    and make small changes to the wording, if
    necessary.
  • BOLD wording must not be changed

13
5.Implementing the LCP
  • Supporting and encouraging the care homes
    to use the document to gain
  • Confidence
  • Competence

14
6.Palliative Care Training
  • Ensuring that care homes identify gaps in
    their training and access appropriate
  • training ie
  • Hospices
  • Foundations in Palliative Care a Programme of
    Facilitated Learning for Care Home Staff

15
7.My Biggest Challenge
  • Supporting care homes who have not
  • engaged with implementing EOLC the LCP

16
Success Story
  • A care home in Tovil regularly uses the LCP
    with good effect and the working document is
    second nature to them now!
