High quality assessment is the cornerstone of good practice. FACE assessment tools are nationally-accredited by the Department of Health and used throughout the UK & Ireland by NHS, social care and independent sector organisations
The product of 20 years’ development work involving hundreds of practitioners, service users and carers, FACE Assessment toolsets are guaranteed to meet all clinical, management and national requirements. They are updated regularly with the involvement of our user network and we are constantly seeking to both improve existing tools and design new tools to meet emerging needs.
Each toolset provides a complete documentation system tailored to the needs of the relevant care group and includes both generic and specialist tools. These support:
- Holistic, person-centred assessment
- Multi-professional, multi-agency working
- Care and support planning
- Self-directed support and resource allocation
- Carer involvement
- Outcomes measurement
- Risk assessment and risk management
- Long-term conditions management
Paper and electronic use
FACE tools may be completed either on paper or electronically. Our clinical software enables easy collection, printing and analysis of all FACE tools. FACE tools are also available from most major health and social care software suppliers.
Training, Support and E-Learning
We take a personal interest in helping you make best use of FACE tools. Our helpdesk is just a call or e-mail away and we provide on-site training for new users of the tools, through our network of experienced FACE trainers. All toolsets include high quality supporting documentation and training materials.
In addition, we run a central training programme for people who wish to become ‘expert users’ of FACE. This course is designed for senior practitioners or trainers who will be taking a lead in implementing FACE in their organisation. Finally, our new e-learning packages provide a simple, low cost method for practitioners to keep up to date with developments and hone their skills in their own time.
