Globally recognized standards help health systems develop and assess important topics such as governance, leadership, infection prevention and control, and medication management, which all affect the quality of services that the public receives.
Similarly, what are data standards? Data standards are the rules by which data are described and recorded. In order to share, exchange, and understand data, we must standardize the format as well as the meaning.
Similarly, you may ask, what are standards in health and social care?
The Standards are underpinned by five principles; dignity and respect, compassion, be included, responsive care and support and wellbeing. The Standards are based on five headline outcomes: I experience high quality care and support that is right for me. I am fully involved in all decisions about my care and support.
