Update on National Intermediate Care Audit 2013
- Created on 24 July 2013
- Written by IJH
Where is intermediate care heading? The 2013 National Intermediate Care Audit continues and its findings will be presented at a national conference on 13 November 2013 in Birmingham.
Online data collection for the NAIC 2013 is now closed
Service user and PREM audit continues until 30th August 2013
Bed based IC services have been sent 50 service user questionnaires to be completed for consecutive service users. The questionnaire includes a Patient Reported Experience Measure (PREM) to be handed to the service user for completion and returned in a freepost envelope. Home based intermediate care and re-ablement services have also been asked to distribute a Patient Reported Experience Measure to service users for completion and return in a freepost envelope. Participating services are now completing this element of the audit.
In July and August, the NAIC Support Team may be contacting participants with questions about the data which has been submitted. The NAIC Support Team would be grateful if you could respond to any queries as soon as possible. This will help to ensure the quality of the data included in the outputs.
