The Shape of Caring Review wants to ensure that nurses and care assistants get high quality education and training.
The review aims to promote good practice and provoke debate on a number of issues relating to education and training of nurses & health care assistants.
This resulted in ‘Raising the Bar’ which set out 34 recommendations under eight themes:
- Enhancing the voice of the patient and the public
- Valuing the care assistant role
- Widening access for care assistants who wish to enter nursing
- Developing a flexible model
- Assuring a high-quality learning environment for pre-registration nurses
