The Dignity Toolkit

The ENACT Project - Empowering Nurses to provide ethical leadership in Care homes supported by a dignity Toolkit

Focused on supporting the nursing contribution to dignifying care for older people in care homes. Registered nurses in 4 care homes engaged with the research team and members of the action research groups (ARGs) to develop a Dignity Toolkit. The project aimed to develop nurses’ knowledge and skills so they are empowered to provide ethical leadership that enacts the dignity of older people and staff.

The people in your care must be able to trust you with their health and well-being. To justify that trust you must: make the care of people your first concern, treating them as individuals and respecting their dignity. This Toolkit contains resources that will help you to provide leadership on dignity in care.To find our about the Dignity Tookit project visit
