Learning from Vanguards WebEx – Multi-disciplinary team (MDT) Working- 15th of November

Our MDT care home support team, alongside our Care Home Vanguard project team will be hosting a national NHS England WebEx focusing on MDT working on Wednesday 15th of November, 10-11am. 

Our MDT is made up of healthcare professionals including a General Nurse, Mental Health Nurse and Physiotherapist. The team meet every Monday where they plan personally tailored care plans that will be offered to the residents they are working with. Each team member brings a different specialism to the table; allowing the team to build up a complete picture of how best to help each resident, delivering the Connecting Care vision of “person-centred” care.

A unique aspect of the MDT is the strong relationships they have built with care home staff. In the past, relationships between health and social care organisations and care homes were very fragmented. However, homes now work collaboratively with our team to shape the future of care in Wakefield.

The team have built confidence in care home staff through ad-hoc training sessions and advice. Such sessions include Staying Steady and Posture, Position and Pressure training; empowering care home staff with the confidence to handle, stretch and mobilise residents. Overall improving quality of life for residents, minimising falls. and upskilling staff.

Join the team to find out more about how our MDT team supports local care home and independent living scheme residents.
