Interactive workshops could be the key to delivering sight loss training for staff in care homes, following a successful pilot programme rolled out by Thomas Pocklington Trust. Dedicated Sight Loss Ambassadors trialed the workshops in six care homes around the UK, with more than 90 per cent of participants reporting a better understanding of common eye problems and a greater appreciation of the importance of sight loss.
This research indicates that a good way to apply change to care homes is through staff participation in group exercises. This delivery method can expedite policy changes, and encourage a quicker adoption among care-givers.
