Conferences and Workshops

UKHCA will continue to run its successful conference and event programme in 2015. Workshops will include popular events such as medication and end of life care and we will add to this workshops requested by members as the year progresses.

Once again, we will be holding a number of HR workshops, such as recruitment and retention and performance management. In addition, we hope to run a number of business support workshops such as health and safety and developing the care business.

If there are other workshops you would like to see us host in 2015, or to suggest a workshop topic and location please e-mail conferences@ukhca.co.uk. Whilst we can't promise to hold an event close to you, the programme will be developed based on the location of those who have expressed an interest in a course (provided our minimum numbers have been achieved).

Don't forget that all events can now be booked by debit or credit card. To use this service, please phone 020 8661 8185.

Delivering the Care Certificate for homecare providers

The aim of the workshop is to provide a clearer understanding of the roles and responsibilities of the homecare provider in meeting the requirements of the Care Certificate, and how this can be delivered in the (homecare) sector. The objectives are to gain an understanding of the requirements for the underpinning knowledge requirement and how the competency of the care worker can be proven. How the assessment element of the Care Certificate can be planned and carried out to provide evidence of competency. Understand how current resources can be mapped to the Care Certificate standards and how to identify further evidence that may be required to ensure the standards are fully met.

End of Life Train the Trainer Workshop

Over 500,000 people die in the UK each year, and projections estimate that the death rate will rise by 17% from 2012 to 2030 across the UK.

It is therefore imperative that homecare workers should be well-trained and able to support service users wishing to stay at home when nearing the end of their life.

UKHCA’s End of Life “Train the trainer” style programme, which includes a resource guide, trainer’s handbook, a PowerPoint presentation and a CD containing the entire course, has been designed to ensure you can train your care staff to a high standard.

Delegates attending this workshop will receive a detailed and comprehensive medication training resource pack, which includes a trainer’s handbook, a staff workbook, exercises and competency sheets and a CD containing a PowerPoint presentation and the entire course.
