Abstract

There is a need for the provision of professional development opportunities for nurses working within care homes in the UK especially at a time when there is a growing demand for nurses within both health and social care settings. This article presents the key findings from an evaluation of a short professional development programme that was offered to a group of care home nurses working in East London. The findings indicate that most of those who attended the programme reported that it was likely that their practice would improve as result.
