Part of Co-production
The Co-production Network is a key part of SCIE's co-production strategy. Its role is to support user, carer and equality groups’ involvement in SCIE’s strategic decision making and provide a pool of stakeholders which SCIE can work with to co-produce projects and programmes.
A new guideline covers the care and support of adults who access social care in their own homes, residential care and community settings. It aims to help people understand what care they can expect and to improve their experience by supporting them to make decisions about their care. It's from the NICE Collaborating Centre for Social Care, which is a consortium led by SCIE.

Part of Care providers – improvement support
For people living in care homes, infections can be serious, and in some cases, life-threatening. This quick guide provides information for managers and care home staff on the most important methods of preventing infection. It covers hand decontamination; using personal protective equipment, such as gloves and aprons; sharps, waste disposal, and educating and informing residents and their visitors. The guide also includes links to additional sources of information. It has been co-produced by NICE and SCIE, and is based on NICE’s guideline on healthcare associated infections: prevention and control in primary and community care and quality standard on infection prevention and control.
This briefing explains that innovative, often small-scale models of health, social care and support for adults could be scaled up to benefit as many people as possible. The challenge is to make scaling up successful. The briefing is based on research conducted during the spring of 2017 by Nesta, SCIE, Shared Lives Plus and PPL. It includes real life stories.
Part of Prevention and wellbeing
With one million people aged 65 and over in the UK reporting they are often or always lonely, few would refute the need to tackle this issue. However, loneliness and social isolation are conditions that are difficult to identify, complex to address and hard to resolve. The evidence base for interventions to address the problems of loneliness and social isolation is emerging but inconclusive at this stage.
Part of Carers
Helping carers to stay in, or return to, employment
Part of Intermediate Care
