QCS launches Dementia Centre to support best practice
Social care guidance provider Quality Compliance Systems (QCS) has launched the Dementia Centre software package that offers comprehensive condition-specific support.
Led by Jackie Pool, the Dementia Centre incorporates QCS PAL Instrument, a real-world tool that guides care professionals to deliver support at the level of dementia that a person is living with.
By using the QCS PAL Instrument as a scaffold, the Dementia Centre will help care professionals support the cognitive needs and abilities of each individual.
"What separates the Dementia Centre from other resources is that it fuses generic guidance, regulatory compliance requirements and the work of world-renowned experts into one single resource,” said Pool (pictured).
“This enables care professionals to move from a purely paper-based environment to a real-world one, which combines the latest compliance with QCS PAL-centric dementia best practice,” she added.
Pool continued: “The result is 'purposeful practice' which has been designed specifically to help those who support people with dementia to deliberately focus on aspects of their care and support in order to become more competent and effective. The resource is ground-breaking in that it also provides measures that service providers can use to benchmark and develop team member’s care practices.”
The Dementia Centre contains a raft of resources, including up-to-date policies and procedures, assessment and outcome measures, case studies, the work of inspirational authors, which together ensure that the Dementia Centre delivers hands-on guidance to providers.
“While providing the latest compliance to our customers will remain a central focus, care providers have been telling us for some time that they also want cutting-edge practical content that they can seamlessly apply to real-world situations,” said, QCS chief executive Nikki Walker.
“The QCS Dementia Centre delivers this while at the same time supporting our goal of delivering transformative solutions for all those dedicated to providing great care,” she added.
