Governance Framework for Multi-Professional Delegation

4th October 2019

A workshop is being held to gather views and experiences of people who deliver health and social care and people who receive health and/or social care.  If you or a loved one receives care, some of the tasks may have been delegated e.g. a health task that a care worker is undertaking under the direction of a nurse. If you have experiences good or not so good that you would like to share please come along.

The workshop will be held on Wednesday 6th November, 1.30 – 4.30 pm.

Lunch will be provided.

If you would like to register to attend this workshop, please contact Laura via email, laura.bonnes@hscni.net, or phone, 028 9536 0210.

The Department of Health’s report on the reform of Adult Care and Support in Northern Ireland, called Power to People (2017), puts the patient at the centre of their health and social care services giving greater power to people to choose and control how they are cared for.

This report and new approaches to service delivery present new opportunities, they also create fresh challenges for regulated professionals responsible for delegating tasks and duties to service users, carers and non-regulated professionals. Indeed, increasingly there may also be a need to delegate to team members from other professional groups, particularly where the provision of care is complex and health and social care teams are integrated, for example within Acute Care at Home teams or district Nursing Teams.
