Webwatch: NISCC Domiciliary Care Toolkit App gets refresh with latest practice info

Written by The Editorial Team

The Northern Ireland Social Care Council (NISCC), regulator for the social care workforce in NI, has refreshed their Mobile Learning App ‘The Domiciliary Care Toolkit’.

The App has updated content on Dementia Care, Adult Safeguarding and the NISCC Standards of Conduct and Practice for Social Care Workers.

Sean Holland, Chief Social Work Officer said:“The e-Health and Care Strategy requires all sectors, including social care to take advantage of digital technology. This App contains important areas of learning and development for care workers which will strengthen their practice and ensure the people they support receive high standards of care.”

“I would like to congratulate the NISCC and their partners on the project team: Dementia Together NI, Bryson Care, Belfast Health & Social Care Trust, Social Care Institute for Excellence and the Regulation and Quality Improvement Authority.

"The learning exercises in this App will help care workers to recognise the types and signs of adult abuse. It raises awareness of dementia and will support workers to deliver best practice in caring for people with this complex illness.”
