Auditing of Residential Care Services

8 People booked this course

Effective and efficient organisations are those that have a structured approach to quality and auditing. The ‘Auditing of Residential Services’ training has been developed to support and guide residential services thinking, planning and delivery of care practices. The training is firmly orientated towards quality, safety, transparency and continual development to improve the experiences for service users, staff, management and external monitoring.

While the current national standards for children’s residential (2001) people with disabilities (2013) and the elderly (2016) provide a framework to audit all elements of your organisation, this training will provide organisations with a system to ensure the practical application of quality, and measurements for continual development.

The HIQA themes address all elements of a quality service incorporating different themes of governance and management, the environment, staffing, development and health, rights, protection and quality of life. This training provides a strategic approach to improving quality whether at the front-line, management, board or national level. It has a clear aim to steer organisations towards a culture of quality control that continuously seeks to provide safe, effective, person centred practices across all services.
