Scottish regulator publishes guide to self-evaluation

This supports the new quality framework for care home inspections
and aims to help care homes to identify what’s working well and what could work
better with reference to the new care home quality indicators.

The Care Inspectorate says that care homes can decide for
themselves how often and what to self-evaluate. This may include the performance
of a team, a particular process, or the experiences evidenced from comments and
complaints received.  

Chapters in the book cover:

  • What is self-evaluation
  • How to use self-evaluation
  • Asking yourself ‘how are we doing?’
  • Asking yourself ‘how do we know?’
  • Asking yourself the question ‘what are we going
    to do next?’
  • Carrying out your self-evaluation
  • Involving people who experience care, and their
  • Checklists for involving people and removing
    barriers to involving people.
