Throughout and beyond the COVID-19 pandemic we recognise that you and your team (whether you’re in a nursing or residential home or providing domiciliary care) are working harder than ever, to manage and protect the health and wellbeing of residents in your home.

We have put together a range of free resources covering our training on spotting deterioration, use of pulse oximeters, videos and case studies:

RESTORE2 – what is it, why use it and ‘in our own words’ stories of why the training matters

Free videos: spotting the early warning signs of residents becoming unwell

Remote monitoring using pulse oximetry in care homes

Recommended Summary Plan for Emergency Care and Treatment (ReSPECT)

Read our RESTORE2 case study which explores the impact of our training.

Free e-learning: RESTORE2 Mini

Blue Stream Academy now offer free RESTORE2 Mini e-learning for all paid and unpaid carers and care staff.

RESTORE2 mini is best suited to non-registered care staff, carers and paid support staff who are not expected to perform observations, and covers “soft signs” of deterioration and structured communication.

Please complete the registration form on their website and Blue Stream will contact you with joining details.

A number of additional programmes we’re involved in support care homes:

  • Domiciliary care challenge: In partnership with South West AHSN and Health Education England (HEE), we are leading a programme to identify innovative solutions to support the domiciliary social and health care workforce and evaluate them in real-world settings.
  • Baywater Telehealth pilot: The Baywater Telehealth Application is being used on a trial basis across care homes with residents with Learning Disabilities in Gloucestershire. Telehealth uses electronic equipment and a tablet to collect information about an individual’s health. The information is then shared with people like a GP.
  • Remote monitoring in care homes – TPP: As part of our Digital Transformation programme we are supporting two of our member Integrated Care Systems to enable nursing care homes to view and communicate directly into the GP record to support joined up clinical care.
