Essence of Care has been refreshed and now contains 12 benchmarks, following a consultation exercise late in 2009. It aims to support localised quality improvement, by providing a set of established and refreshed benchmarks supporting front line care across care settings at a local level.
The benchmarking process outlined in Essence of Care 2010 helps practitioners to take a structured approach to sharing and comparing practice, enabling them to identify the best and to develop action plans to remedy poor practice.
This edition supersedes the previous versions originating since 2001.
