Recruitment Process

The programme has been primarily developed for care homes. However, to be inclusive of all care homes, the programme can be adapted to suit the individual care setting; ensuring all the set outcomes are met.   Discussions with the local multidisciplinary team should take place prior to the programme commencing to ensure care homes have support to meet the programme outcomes. 

It is suggested you hold an awareness event to introduce the Six Steps to Success Programme.  The aim is to invite all care homes, giving consideration on how to manage numbers.  

Participation criteria has been developed not to limit recruitment but to affirm commitment to the Six Steps to Success Programme.
