Exemplar share best practice at NCCTC conference

As part of the National Commissioning and Contracting Training Conference (NCCTC), Exemplar Health Care will be sharing expertise around delivering meaningful and therapeutic service user engagement in a specialist care environment and moving away from the term ‘activities’.

The conference invites more than 250 health commissioners and covers topics around social care, health and education and invites key note speakers as well as holding best practice workshops.

On the second day of the two-day conference, Exemplar’s Head of Service Development and Engagement, Andrew Frankel-Caine will be holding a workshop around moving away from the term ‘activities’ and will be sharing expertise on meaningful and therapeutic service user engagement in a specialist care home setting. 

Andrew will be discussing how Exemplar draw on good practice from occupational therapy, nursing and physiotherapy and create tailored care plans which, as well as catering for the service user’s clinical care needs, incorporate meaningful therapeutic engagement. Examples include Exemplar’s innovative Service User Council, which gives residents real decision-making capability and an expanding portfolio of roles and responsibilities for service users at Exemplar homes.

Exemplar is exhibiting at the conference and will be on hand to discuss the variety of specialist care and support our 26 nurse-led homes provide for people who live with complex needs including neuro-disabilities, brain injury, spinal injury and stroke, complex dementia, autism and learning disability and complex dementia.
