A new resource for nurses working in the care sector is being unveiled today.

The Care Sector microsite provides a community hub for nurses working in the sector, and provides an opportunity for care homes and care providers to share best practice.

The five teaching care homes – Barchester, Healthcare Order of St John’s Trust, Methodist Homes Association, HC One and Jewish Care Homes – will showcase initiatives they are working on to improve care.

The Care Sector microsite will also include opinion pieces from senior nurses working in the Department of Health, Care England and major nursing charities as well as ministers and regulators.

“Care homes are an essential part of an integrated health and social care system, and they have an important role to play in training and developing an integrated workforce,” said Professor Martin Green OBE, chief executive of Care England.

We are confident that the teaching care home will be an important part of developing 21st Century services, that cross the continuum between health and social care. We welcome this exciting partnership with Nursing Times,” he added.

Speaking about the launch, Jenni Middleton, editor of Nursing Times, said: “The care sector is often seen as a backwater of nursing, but it is an incredibly innovative and autonomous space to practise in, and we wanted to showcase this. We are delighted to be working with Care England to profile fantastic care sector work.”

Deborah Sturdy, visiting professor at New Bucks University, and nurse adviser to Care England, added: “The care sector workforce provide complex health care for thousands of people living in long term care settings.

“Creating this important platform for nurses and care workers to share and learn together, is an important part of raising the profile and contribution the long-term care specialism brings to the nursing profession,” she said.
