Primary Care Respiratory Academy Fit to Care videos

Thursday, December 20, 2018

The Primary Care Respiratory Academy have today released two new videos discussing the Primary Care Respiratory Society's Fit for Care guidance.

In 2017, the Primary Care Respiratory Society published Fit to Care: key knowledge skills and training for clinicians providing respiratory care. Its aim is to provide guidance for clinicians and commissioners regarding the skills, knowledge and training required by healthcare professionals working with patients with a respiratory condition.

In the video aimed at clinicians, lead author Ren Lawlor (Senior Lecturer Adult Nursing and Paramedic Science, University of Greenwich, London) and Daryl Freeman (North Norfolk GP/Respiratory and Research Lead and a Clinical Director for the East of England Strategic Clinical Network) discuss how Fit to Care has been used to improve individual-level training and ensure that staff have the appropriate skills for optimal clinical care.

In the video aimed at commissioners, they discuss how Fit to Care was used in Daryl’s RightCare work, and how it has proved relevant to work recently undertaken in North Norfolk CCG.
