Calderdale Framework Foundation Day

Applications closed

The Course

The Calderdale Framework provides a clear and systematic method of reviewing skill mix and roles within a service to ensure quality and safety for patients.  It is wholly transferable to any health or social care setting, and enables patient focused development of new roles and new ways of working, leading to improved efficiency in utilisation of roles.  The process of applying CF leads to the development of a detailed competency training document, based on tasks and functions which are needed to deliver patient focused services. This provides the basis for work-based training, and reduces unjustifiable variations in care.

This is an interactive one day workshop designed to give participants an overview and understanding of The Calderdale Framework and its supporting tools. It is the first step of the Effective Workforce Programme, and equips participants with the knowledge and understanding to become Calderdale Framework champions in their organisation.

The Course Tutors: 

Rachael Smith and Jayne Duffy, the creators, developers and IP holders of The Calderdale Framework.

They have been developing The Calderdale Framework for several years and were highly commended at The HSJ Awards 2008 for their work around delegation, and again finalists at 2011 HSJ Awards with their work in relation to using the Calderdale Framework to successfully implement Assistant Practitioners into practice.

In 2013 the work using CF to integrate the Health and Social Care Workforce again led to finalist inclusion of The HSJ Awards. Both Rachael and Jayne hold Master of Science Academic Awards.
