'Essence of Care' was first introduced in 2001, designed to support and address the fundamentals of care which are still at the heart of its 12 benchmarks. 'Essence of Care' is ideal for frontline staff in health and social care settings.
For the purpose of these benchmarks record keeping is defined as: any paper or electronic-based record which contains information or personal data pertaining to people's care.
'Essence of Care 2010 - Benchmarks for Record Keeping' provides best practice guidance to determine that people benefit from records that promote communication and high quality care. It ensures that people are able to access their care records in a format that meets their needs and that those records are safeguarded.
This title must be read in conjunction with 'How to Use Essence of Care 2010' (please see below). It should also be noted that all the benchmarks are interrelated.
'Essence of Care 2010 - Benchmarks for the Fundamental Aspects of Care' which contains all 12 benchmarks and 'How to Use Essence of Care 2010' is also available to purchase (please see below).
