Prioritising improved support using Best Practice

As we mark the one year anniversary of the first Covid lockdown in the UK, at the DSDC we have reflected on what has been an incredibly challenging year for all services.  We have been in awe, hearing the stories coming out of health and social care about the commitment, the sacrifices and the extraordinary efforts of those working in care. Our hats are off to you, thank you!

Recently we heard from Bodlondeb (Pendine Park) in Wrexham who sent us in their completed Best Practice reflections.  For those of you unfamiliar with the programme, Best Practice is an organisational based learning programme created by the DSDC which is run by a facilitator within the organisation who has been trained by the DSDC to run discussion and reflection groups across their organisation.  Each time the organisation runs the course it is over a four month period. So lately, when we have been receiving complete reflections from course participants we have been especially moved by the efforts put into improving practice during such a stressful time.

Best Practice facilitator Arlene Elano stated: “I’m very proud of this group as they were able to complete all the exercises and sessions despite the difficulties we encountered all the way because of the pandemic and the staffing level were much affected.”  Well done to the best practice participants from Bonlondeb!
