Event Summary

CQC have launched their new single assessment framework to drive improvements across the health and care system, helping to tackle health inequalities. 

With the new assessments beginning later this year, it is vital for heath and care providers and the integration and commissioning roles of Integrated Care Systems and local authorities to get to grips with what is changing.  

Westminster Insight’s Conference will help providers prepare for the CQC monitoring and inspection changes under their new approach to regulation. 

Get an understanding of the new Quality Statements replacing the Key Lines of Enquiry and the role of ‘I’ and ‘We’ statements. Learn how to gather and present different sources of evidence and demonstrate outcomes which will have a greater emphasis in the new framework. 

Discuss how to prepare your organisation for the changes with a range of different health and care providers. Benchmark your current service provision through effective self-assessment, identify areas for improvement and prepare your staff for observation of care through on-site inspections. 

Hear about how the CQC will be using their new powers to assess care at a local authority and integrated care system level and hear from the ‘test and learn’ sites that undertook elements of the new inspection regime. 

Explore how to embed learning from a CQC inspection to ensure your organisation is continually driving improvements in quality across the 5 key areas: Caring, Effective, Responsive, Safe and Well Led.
