Care Planning

Keep care planning in-step with the CQC’s requirement for positive service user experiences

Care Planning

  • Supports your CQC Compliance under The Care Act 2014 and The Health and Social Care Act 2008 (Regulated Activities) Regulations 2015
  • Policies & Procedures are fully customised to you as required by the CQC
  • Save Time — How long would it take you to create and update 2300+ pages of guidance?

Care planning with QCS ensures you have the right tools to create comprehensive care plans personalised to the individual needs of each service user. The CQC’s requirements for care planning are intended to ensure high quality care is consistently delivered.

For service providers the essential demand from the CQC for achieving compliance is to ensure that care is service user-centric. QCS Care Planning shapes positive care outcomes by providing the resources to enable those carrying out care assessments to create a total specification for the service user experience.

Challenge

The challenge of providing care quality of a consistently high standard that meets the specific needs of each service user tends to be problematical. With the need to cover every aspect of the Service User’s life within the care setting, care planning is highly complex. As a result, even the most experienced care workers find it difficult to structure their approach to care planning so that nothing is missed out.

Solution

QCS Care Planning is a development of the Roper-Logan-Tierney model of community care, providing the basis for the comprehensive support of all aspects of the Service User’s life. This avoids the pitfalls of using hospital style care plans which are not suited to care home settings because they fail to provide appropriate support.

With QCS the care planning cycle is a process which adopts the industry standard methodology for providing care.

  • Assessment
  • Documentation
  • Development
  • Choose
  • Plan
  • Record
  • Review (looping back to Assessment to complete the Cycle)

The QCS Care Planning cycle interweaves the PDCA (Plan-Do-Check-Act) approach and supports compliance by documenting consent and collecting evidence of service user consultation and choice.

Care planning is central to adult social care and QCS enables every care organisation to achieve care planning proficiency. It provides a framework for care workers with differing levels of skill and experience to carry out high quality care planning.

Latest Question

Can I start a care provision without an office location?

Hi Sheila,

Hope you are well. I have been asked by a very good friend of mine to look at opening up a care provision for the elderly in the area of re-enablement. As I understand it we would need a nominated person, a registered manager and a registered location. The first two are ok but in regards to the office/location would this need to be registered before we start trading or can it be done during the first few months of trading?

Thank you for your time and I look forward to hearing from you.

Best wishes,

S
