The Professional Record Standards Body (PRSB) is currently working on the production of a digital care and support planning standard. Following a workshop, they are now conducting a survey for the final stages of the project and Social Care News subscribers can help.
The PRSB is seeking views from patients, carers and other citizens, including health and care professionals and industry representatives on the content of a standard for a digital care and support plan. Please click on the online survey to participate.
Your views will help ensure that the project's intended outcomes and recommendations are practical and fit for purpose. The survey should take approximately 20 minutes to complete and will close at 5pm on 8 September 2017.
The project is being run in conjunction with North West London Collaboration of Clinical Commissioning Groups (NWL CCGs) and NHS Digital.
By defining the standards for the structure of care and support plans, the PRSB hopes these plans can be be shared and updated electronically between patients, carers and the health and social care providers who support them.
This widespread consultation is invaluable in ensuring that all data items are meaningful, relevant, and fit for purpose to record and incorporate into health and care information systems to be embedded across all nations of the UK.
