Fit to Care: a commissioning perspective

Posted on: 20 Dec 2018

The National Review of Asthma Deaths reports unwarranted variation in the standard of respiratory care. This variation is partly a consequence of inadequate training of those clinicians asked to provide the care.

Daryl Freeman, Clinical Director for the East of England Strategic Clinical Network, discusses the variability in respiratory admissions across 16 practices in her North Norfolk CCG. She uses Fit to Care guidance to audit and provide for the training needs of all clinicians. The result? Lower admissions.

Best attribute of Fit to Care for commissioners? The guidance to help all clinicians in primary care who are asked to deliver care beyond their skill set.

This video complements another resource, narrated by Ren Lawlor, that demonstrates its impact on learning and development for clinicians.
