Building and maintaining professional standards
To support service providers build and maintain professional standards, Research in Practice for Adults has updated an online mapping resource.
The mapping resource is designed to enable service providers to meet, and evidence they have met, the requirements of the Care Quality Commission key lines of enquiry.
When inspecting adult social care services, the Care Quality Commission will assess whether the service is safe, effective, caring, responsive and well-led. To maintain standards, provider organisations will receive a score based on each key line of enquiry.
Related Research in Practice for Adults publications and learning resources have been mapped to each line of enquiry, based on key topics and themes to support professional development and maintain standards across services.
