Complete the entire assessment at once, or take it a piece at a time. This will give you a good picture of how you feel your overall standard of care is improving.
There are around 200 questions, so allow a little time!
The internet's packed with great material on person-centred care, but how do you sort the good from the bad?
We save you the time and trouble of scouring the web. CFFV uses the VIPS principles to identify resources and approaches particularly for care.
Websites are great sources of information. We aim to point to the most practical and reliable sites.
Online training courses, mainly free. Some are beautifully presented and interactive.
Short videos, great for showing the human side of care. Often free.
Practical products for particular tasks. We tell you where to find them.
We list books when they add to what's freely available on the web.
Online training is good but advanced skills demand quality face-to-face training.
Designed to be used over and over again. Improvements will need staff and others to get involved.
As a manager you have a big job of building a culture of change.
Care Fit for VIPS tool is tailored to your service. When you register, confirm your service type, and Care Fit for VIPS will automatically provide the right self-assessments and resources for you.
