Seminar Title: The thin blue line: professional integrity and unsafe practice
This topic can be highly emotive and fraught with complications. The session will consider the difficulties professionals face when they observe bad practice, and questions are set to run very deep. What is poor practice? How do professionals confront such a complex subject? Should we always raise a safeguarding when we see something we are unhappy about? Has balanced decision-making made a difference? How do we maintain integrity and facilitate positive handling experiences for everyone involved?

Seminar Title: Does Single-handed care influence the delay in transfer of care?
Single-handed care has been shown to make significant financial and efficiency savings across several councils (Harrison, 2017) and is a project that is sustainable (Bagatelas and Pluckrose, 2017). Delayed transfers of care (DTOC) from the NHS to a community bed reduces the number of beds available for other patients, can cause considerable distress, unnecessarily long stays (NHS England, 2018) and impacts the elderly frail morbidity due to rapid deconditioning (NAPC, 2016). We will explore how the delayed transfers of care are measured, why they occur, the impact and the correlation between single-handed care projects and DTOC. The presentation will involve an evaluation of workplace practices of 18 NHS Trusts and associated councils, using four different types of data sets, exploring did the single-handed care projects influence DTOC. Deborah looks forward to sharing and discussing the finding with you.
