Report intended to help information professionals and researchers make informed choices when planning searches on social care topics
The Care Quality Commission (CQC) commissioned SCIE in 2010 to define excellence in adult social care services in England. This definition was developed in consultation with a range of people who provide and use care services. It also draws on of selected research and examples of quality frameworks in social care. This report provides the definition of excellence and identifies its four essential elements. Three of these relate to improvements in people's lives as a result of using the service: choice and control; good relationships; spending time purposefully and enjoyably. The fourth element relates to organisational and service factors which enable these outcomes to be achieved and sustained. CQC will use this report to help develop its new quality information system for regulated adult care services in England.
