Healthcare Improvement Scotland are holding awareness raising sessions on the new Health Social Care Standards in Glasgow.
The sessions will be held on Monday 14th of May 2018 at Healthcare Improvement Scotland’s office – with 12.30 as the last time available. The session will last 1.5 hours.
Scotland’s new Health and Social Care Standards were published by the Scottish Government in June 2017. The new standards set out what care should look and feel like for people every time they use health and social care services; they aim to establish people’s care experiences, rather than compliance with technical inputs, as the key measure of quality. The standards are not tied to any particular care setting, and will help to support partnership working and improvement in services across health and social care. They complement the body of existing and emerging guidance on clinical interventions and specific services with a focus on what really matters – the experience of people who uses services, and ensuring that the quality of that experience is as the standards describe.
The session aims to:
- Ensure people who use services know to expect a high quality of care and a positive experience
- Ensure people working in health and social care know what the standards are and how to work in a way that supports them
- Ensure service providers practice in a way that promotes a positive experience of care and support
- Answer any questions you may have of what the standards mean to you and your work
