Quality Initiatives Map
TLAP's 'Driving Up Quality' briefings set out to provide a framework to promote quality in adult social care:
- What is quality?
- How can we assure and improve quality?
- Who has responsibility for quality and quality assurance at national and local level and how can they help to improve quality?
Care Act 2014 and new regulations setting out Fundamental Standards of quality require change to the services people receive and increasing quality requirements.
This simple map is designed to help providers of adult social care in particular, to navigate the complex quality system. It identifies the organisations responsible for policy, setting quality standards and guidance, along with key frameworks and initiatives that providers need to know about. The map will evolve over time as new organisations or initiatives are added when appropriate.
