Essex County Council Quality Innovation Team
What do we do Using CQC reports and the ADASS auditing tool we look at themes and trends within adult social care provision and develop resources designed to address needs and improve quality within regulated services including residential and nursing care , domiciliary services and supported living. Identified gaps in quality have included O Medication management O Dementia O End of Life care O Inclusive Communication O Learning Disability with Mental Health needs O Falls O Nutrition & Hydration O Pressure areas O Sepsis O Nursing skills
How we do this Where ever possible we work with colleagues in health or develop our own learning. On occasions we will engage with external consultants to deliver the right learning experience for the adult social care market. O Workshops O Train the Trainer courses O Cascade training O Champions days O Community of practice O Conferences O Virtual experiences (VDT/ARE/GERT)

VDT Two month survey • Changes in communication • Make sure I have eye contact before speaking. Speaking in a lower calm tone. Don't give more than one instruction at a time and give time to process. My facial expression is soft and open. • Ensure I stand directly in front of someone but not over them. I speak more slowly and clearly • With what I was shown and experienced at the VDT the changes I have made are mainly in response to the client.1.Getting the persons attention before I speak. 2. To only say what is relevant rather than using lots of words when in conversation . • Changes to physical environment • Keeping entrances and floor space clear. I have found items of red to help clients distinguish and recognise areas they find hard to see • Definitely thought about noise levels simple things like turning volume down on TV • If the people are being loud I remind them that this could trigger behaviours and ask them to quieten down or I will invite the person to accompany me to a quieter room. Use brightly coloured cups instead of white ones.
