SHARP Autumn 2016 Half Day Workshops
"Keeping up to date with best practice: attending to the physical needs of older people"
We're pleased to announce details of our half day SHARP 2016 Autumn workshops. We have three main themes all designed to help you support people to live their lives to the full – to keep them rocking and rolling! You will then have the opportunity to show this ‘best practice’ in your SHARP care plan.
- Catheter care
- Bowel care
- Medication management for older people
If you are a SHARP licensed care home, you have 2 free places available to you per home! You can book additional places at the reduced rate of £20.00 per person or for those of you who have registered as ExtraSHARP users, the reduced rate is £15.00 per person. You'll also have an opportunity for you to ask questions about SHARP and give feedback and for me to give you the latest news about any SHARP developments. So a varied and interesting workshop is in store, as always!
What if I don't use SHARP?
If you're not from a SHARP licensed care home you will still find these workshops invaluable for learning about these themes and meeting like-minded care professionals from other homes, so why not come along?
Non SHARP users can attend for a small fee of £40 per attendee, which represents very good value for money for updating your "best practice". If you're thinking of updating your care planning system to an up-to-date person-centred one, here's an opportunity to meet our existing users who can tell you all about it! Click here to book

SHARP Records & Plans
is a care planning and documentation system for use in care homes for older people. It's in use by over 50 care homes throughout the UK.
Our philosophy is that the record of care is an essential stage in the caring process - it is not an "added extra".
SHARP Records & Plans can do this because it:
What do you get?
All this for a fixed, easily budgetted annual charge per registered bed. That's it! No additional costs (apart from postage) and no more struggling with your existing care planning system! How much will you save in photocopying and paper costs alone?
Of course, your staff need to have the knowledge and skills to care, but then they need to be able to plan the care and make a record, in a clear and concise document, to show how they support the resident.
We always strongly recommend you take one of our training packages when implementing SHARP Records & Plans.
