RCN Scotland has launched two new publications on bed-based intermediate care in Scotland.
The first is a report exploring how intermediate care beds are being provided in Scotland today. It looks at the evidence that shows what works well for intermediate care, and identifies a gap between the Scottish Government’s vision and how intermediate care beds are being provided across Scotland.
Alongside the report, RCN Scotland has also launched a decision-making tool for nursing staff involved in decision making about bed-based intermediate care. The tool is designed to be used to think through what needs to be considered to ensure intermediate care beds are delivered in a planned and integrated way to provide safe and effective care.

These resources were developed following extensive engagement with stakeholders, including Scottish Care and independent sector care providers.
RCN Scotland will be holding a Twitter chat on Thursday 28 September to discuss the report. The conversation can be followed at #BBICare
