CQC “wants to see innovation”, Care England conference hears

“As long as innovation is safe and person-centred, the CQC wants to see it,” CQC adult social care chief inspector Kate Terroni told delegates at the recent Care England conference.

She also reassured registrants that it is “also OK if it doesn’t work.”

She congratulated care home registrants on quality ratings that are “inching upwards”. She said this was testament to the resilience of the sector.

In a separate presentation, Care England chief executive Martin Green said that barriers to innovation and integration in care homes include silo thinking, lack of career path integration and funding. This equates to one tenth of the spending on health care, he said.

IN his presentation Professor Green explored the routes to care home quality success. He said these include:

  • A focus on the person
  • Varied training that plays to staff’s strengths
  • Clearly measuring the benefits of training
  • Clear and consistent messaging about status and professionalism
  • Incentivised career development people to develop careers
  • Innovation in use of technology and role development

Enablers include: funding; managed performance; workforce capacity and oversight.
