CQC webinar to discuss approach to care home inspections, monitoring
The Care Quality Commission (CQC) is to host a webinar on 20 September on how it is monitoring and prioritising inspections as it prepares to make changes to how it regulates.
The one-hour session between 15:00-16:00 will be led by CQC deputy chief inspector of adult social care Sue Howard.
There will be a presentation and time to answer questions in a live chat.
“In June we updated on how we’re also making changes to how we regulate. We’re further evolving our monitoring approach to ensure the public have assurance about the safety and quality of the care they receive, while still focusing on risk,” the CQC said.
“In July we introduced our new monitoring approach as a development from the transitional monitoring we did last year," it added.
“The developments carry on the progress in how we monitor services in three key areas by: improving our ability to monitor risk to help us be more targeted in our regulatory activity; bringing information together in one place for inspection teams, presented in a way that supports inspectors with their decision making; (and) testing elements of how we want to work in the future, including how we provide a more up-to-date view of risk for people who use services.”
