PRSB seeks social care involvement

Information sharing with social care is integral to the facilitation of good care.

Following a meeting with the UK’s chief social worker for adults, Lyn Romeo, the PRSB has been working to boost awareness of the importance of record standards within the social care sector. We are actively seeking involvement from social care representatives, to find out more about the information they need from healthcare professionals to provide better care for service users.

Meanwhile, we have also undertaken a project on care homes, which analyses information flows in and out of care homes, to determine where improvements need to be made. This report will be available on our website next month.

At the end of this week the PRSB will be attending a social care strategy meeting, to further discuss the ways in which we can work with professionals on the development of upcoming standards.
