Creating standards for health and social care records

Care record standards exist to improve the safety and quality of health and social care. They ensure that the right information is recorded correctly and can be accessed easily. 

PRSB's Wound Care Information Standard is now LIVE

The PRSB has published a Wound Care Information Standard which will support the use of evidence-based practice and consistent recording of information which can be shared with professionals involved in the person’s care.

The standard will support the NWCSP’s goals to reduce pain and suffering, improve healing rates, prevents wounds from happening or coming back, and support self-management of wounds.

PRSB's Diabetes Standard receives an Information Standards Notice (ISN)

Sharing information for diabetes care between professionals and people managing their condition will be improved thanks to the PRSB’s Diabetes Record Information Standard which has just been mandated for use across the NHS and social care.

The standard will enable sharing diabetes information between people and professionals across all care settings, including self management data from digital apps and medical devices.

PRSB launches a toolkit for the Palliative and End of Life Care Information Standard

We have launched our latest toolkit to help local health and care systems implement the PRSB’s Palliative and End of Life Care Information Standard.

Its adoption will ensure that individuals are able to decide what care is right for them at this critical stage of life and that this information is available to health and care professionals who need it to support the person and their loved ones.
