Quality Accreditation, Monitoring and Assurance in Health and Social Care

Fri, 6 Dec 2024

Virtual, Online

Follow the conference on X #QualityAccreditation

This conference focuses on quality accreditation, monitoring and assurance. The conference will support you to develop systems and processes for local accreditation for quality. Accreditation can be used as a tool to encouraging ownership of continuous quality improvement, reduce variation and increase staff pride and team working.

There will be an extended focus on meeting the CQC Quality Statements in line with the new assessment framework.

““Over the coming months, we will gradually roll out our new single assessment framework to all providers in England.””

Care Quality Commission 21 December 2023

““We want the ratings to better reflect the care people are receiving””

Amanda Hutchinson, Head of Policy, Regulatory Change, 2nd August 2023

““Our new assessment approach will be more flexible and proportionate, and will be the driving force behind giving an up-to-date view of quality.””

Ian Trenholm Chief Executive, CQC July 2023

“Trusts that have implemented successful accreditation programmes report several key benefits from doing so. These are:
• Reduces unwarranted variation by providing an evidence-based, standardised approach to supporting the delivery of care and improving quality. It standardises practice in key processes: for example, patient discharge, patient observations, staffing, risk assessments for patients, audits.
• Increases staff engagement, encourages team working and improves staff morale, leading to reduced turnover, sickness and reliance on temporary staff.
• Helps doctors, nurses, midwives and care staff understand what the expected standards are at Trust, ward and unit level by providing a clear set of standards and a measure of how well quality care is being delivered
• Provides ward-to- board assurance on the quality of care and demonstrates compliance with fundamental standards which enables preparedness for external inspections.
• Creates a platform for continuous improvement in patient safety and patient experience, and encourages staff engagement in local quality improvement projects.
• Improves accountability and encourages shared governance by enabling a focus on the key risks associated with the delivery of care as well as by identifying excellent practice.
• Provides a platform for shared learning so that wards and units can learn from each other and disseminate excellent practice.
• Creates a culture of pride and accomplishment and supports collective leadership, personal and professional development.”
