'Essence of Care' was first introduced in 2001 to support and address the fundamentals of care. 'Essence of Care 2010' is a tool designed to help healthcare professionals take a patient-focused and structured approach to the sharing and comparing of practice. The aim to support localised quality improvement is at the heart of the 12 revised benchmarks contained in this publication.
The updated 'Essence of Care 2010' supports and reflects a number of the themes in 'Equality and Excellence: Liberating the NHS' and provides a suite of benchmarks to drive forward best practice in delivering the fundamentals of care and improving the experiences of people who use the services.
'Essence of Care' is essential for all front line staff in health and social care settings. This title provides all 12 benchmarks along with the 'Essence of Care 2010 - How to Use' guidance, which includes a description of the benchmarking tool and explains how to use the 12 benchmarks.
