Safer Care Homes Resources


Between 2016 and 2018, 9 care homes participated in an improvement collaborative to reduce harm. Using the Breakthrough Series Collaborative model to support improvement, care homes share learning at peer site visits, built understanding of safety culture and developed improvement capability of staff, focusing specifically on:

  • Reducing Falls
  • Medication safety
  • Pressure ulcer prevention

Improvement toolkit

Participating care homes have captured their learning from this programme in a “Safer Care Homes Toolkit”, which documents how they followed six steps to improvement and highlights learning from tests of change to reduce falls and introduce safety huddles.
