Delivering safe, effective, quality care to patients is at the heart of our business, however measuring and assuring the quality and standards of care delivered to patients by individuals and teams is not an easy process.
The following pages will provide an overview of the Care Assurance System (CAS) approach, an update on the development of CAS within the pilot areas and outline plans for further implementation.
Below are a series of presentations which will provide an introduction to CAS from key staff who are currently involved in the development, planning and implementation of their speciality standards The presentations were delivered by the CAS leads from across the four phases at a Tri -board engagement event In November 2014. We have been working in collaboration with NHS Lanarkshire & NHS Ayrshire & Arran to develop care standards.
The 4 phases are:
1. Acute services - Currently Implementing the Adult Acute Inpatient Standards
2. Mental Health (Adult Services)
3. Women and Children's (Paediatrics & Neonates/Midwifery)
4. Community Nursing & Health Visiting
We hope that you will find the information provided within the following sections both informative and engaging and we will update regularly on developments as things move along - so watch this space!
