Advance CaMP: The Advanced Care Management Programme

Course Description

In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, HIQA have placed new demands for services to have effective deputization arrangements in place, which will authorize key members of staff to step into new roles if and when required. The HCI's Advanced Care Management Programme aims to provide a comprehensive body of knowledge for key individuals within nursing homes, highlighting the regulatory and best practice requirements, and providing participants with the skills to apply the tools and techniques to support their implementation.
