New framework developed to support the learning disabilities workforce

25 September 2015

A framework to aid development of the learning disabilities workforce in the health and care sectors is now available to download from the Health Education England (HEE) website.

The Generic Service Interventions Pathway is a competency framework developed with people with learning disabilities, their family and carers, and in collaboration with Skills for Health and learning disabilities experts. It will support delivery of person-centred care and ensure services are delivered by caring, compassionate, knowledgeable, skilled and supported staff.

The framework will help learning disability managers, educators and commissioners to better understand the development needs of their workforce, allowing them to maximise the contribution of the of the existing workforce and implement new ways of working that focus on improving patient outcomes.

It will be a valuable resource tool that can be used to identify knowledge and skills gaps, and outline where support and information can be found.
