The Health Equalities Framework – embedding good practice
The Health Equalities Framework (HEF) has now been implemented by a number of health and social care organisations across England, as well as some family carer groups.
In order to support the implementation and development of the HEF, Skills for Care commissioned the National Development Team for Inclusion to run two free workshops, one in the North and one in the South of the country for organisations and family carers who are using the HEF.
The aims of the workshops were to:
- Find out what information people are gathering, and how they are using it;
- Find out the best approaches for people to learn to use the HEF;
- Establish if there are additional learning needs for specific groups such as social care organisations or families and carers in order to make full use of the HEF;
- Explore any changes to practice/service delivery that have taken place as result of implementing the HEF;
- Provide a forum for sharing experiences of using the HEF and learning about the process;
- Develop a network of users who can support each other;
- Ensure people are aware of current HEF initiatives such as the e-learning package being developed;
- Identify any further developments to the HEF that would be helpful.
