Actions you can take today

We all have a part to play in ensuring that, once their acute needs are met, all patients – particularly older people – can enjoy their lives in the best place for them. This means thinking ‘Why not home? Why not today?’ every day, with every patient.

To support you, we have created action cards highlighting the most important things you should be doing each day in relation to the five key principles.

Simply download the card most relevant to your role and find out about the specific actions you should be taking each day.

A new e-learning tool called ActNow has been developed for health and care staff to help them to prevent delayed transfers of care. The tool can be use by nurses, allied health professionals and care staff to ensure that patients have the best outcomes possible following care received in hospital.
