Improving practice and preparing for inspection with NICE quality standards

NICE has published a new resource that outlines how quality standards fit with other improvement initiatives and  suggests ways you can use NICE quality standards to improve practice, including preparing for inspection. It also identifies which quality standard statements are likely to be most relevant for each of CQC’s 5 key questions. The resource was developed by the NCCSC (NICE Collaborating Centre for Social Care) working with an advisory group of sector experts, including care home mangers. You can see the resource here:
