Posted 23rd June 2010

The end of April 2010 saw the launch of the above Code by the BSI.  Many of you may not be familiar with this Code, as we have had the UKRC Standards to become familiar with.

The end of April 2010 saw the launch of the above Code by the BSI.  Many of you may not be familiar with this Code, as we have had the UKRC Standards to become familiar with.

 

These guidelines were developed with the UKRC as part of their remit to improve rehabilitation services and access to rehabilitation service in the UK.

It is disappointing that these guidelines have not been accredited and they have not been developed in a format where accreditation would be possible without being rewritten.

 

Leaving the issue of accreditation and other guidelines that are available aside, this document is a comprehensive document that leads the reader through the scope of the provision of rehabilitation services.  This Code can be seen as a resource for where to obtain relevant information as to resources, statutory services etc. in order to provide robust rehabilitation services.  It also outlines how to approach the whole concept of rehabilitation for the smoothest progress for the service user.

 

Will there be any recourse if you don't follow them in your practice?  No, not at the current time.  Would it be advisable to incorporate these Guidelines into your area of practice?  Yes, at least they should be read and considered as anything that assists in improving delivery and quality of service should be scrutinised and analysed as to its relevance to ones practice.

 

As members of the UKRC, which CMSUK are, members can take advantage of the reduced rate when purchasing the Guidelines.
