Accreditation of Inspection Activities of health and social care providers - Paul Stennett

The 3rd GCC Laboratory Proficiency Conference is organized as part of the strategic orientations of the GCC Standardization Organization (GSO) for the development of the standardization and quality infrastructure, thereby contributing to the development of commerce and industry and to the support of national economy in the GCC member states. Since the field of proficiency testing is newly introduced in the GCC member states and as the infrastructure of laboratories has not yet taken the shape of national or regional organizations representing the laboratories and reflecting their requirements, GSO is in need of meeting with a considerable group of laboratories to explore and prioritize GCC member states’ requirements in terms of the fields which must top the list of the fields to be developed and upgraded. Based on the study conducted by GSO during 2011 on the status of proficiency testing activities in the member states which shown that the laboratories operating in the member states are in need of a unified data center on proficiency testing activities, GSO organized two conferences in 2013 and 2014 on the subject. The conferences scored high rates of success in terms of the selected scientific material, quality of speakers and the targeted audience. Accordingly, GSO conceptualization of the method of coordinating and upgrading the activity of proficiency tests in the GCC member states included a recommendation on the organization of annual training courses and awareness symposia by the GSO on the fields of proficiency tests. This year’s Conference will be held in Dubai during two days the 24th and 25th of March 2015, and will coincide with the annual Analytical Industry exhibition ARABLAB which will be held in Dubai during the period 23 – 26 March 2015.

Accreditation of Inspection Activities of health and social care providers - Paul Stennett

  • 1. Accreditation of Inspection health and social care in the UK Paul Stennett, Chief Executive Officer, UKAS
  • 3. Introduction to UKAS • UKAS established in 1995 as a non-profit distributing private company limited by guarantee • Originated in 1966; 49 years of accreditation experience • The UK’s national accreditation body; European Union Regulation gives a legal framework and requirement for accreditation throughout Europe • The performance of UKAS is monitored by the UK Government and peer-assessed internationally
  • 4. “Procedure by which an authoritative body gives formal recognition that an organisation is competent to carry out specific tasks” • Independent & impartial assessment by competent authoritative third party – an accreditation body • Demonstration of technical competence, integrity & impartiality • Gives confidence to all users and reduces risk What is accreditation?
  • 5. UKAS and Healthcare accreditation • The first accreditation scheme for medical (pathology) laboratories in the UK, was launched in 1992 by Clinical Pathology Accreditation (“CPA”). • CPA was established by the medical and clinical professionals in the UK who developed the CPA standard. • The CPA standard provided much of the basis for ISO 15189. • CPA merged with UKAS in 2009.
  • 6. UKAS accreditation for Diagnostics and Scientific Services • Medical Laboratories ISO 15189 • Point of care testing ISO 15189 and 22870 • EQA Providers ISO 17043 • Physiological diagnostics • Imaging Services Accreditation Scheme • Medical Devices ISO 13485 • Hospital QM schemes (ISO 9000) • Public Health laboratories(ISO15189 & 17025) • Medical Physics and engineering (ISO 15189) ( under development)
  • 7. UKAS Accreditation – essential ingredients • Delivered in accordance with international standards that are mutually recognised • Defined requirements for competence of bodies seeking/gaining accreditation • Rigorous independent, impartial assessment process conducted by competent peer assessors • Independent decision making • Access to stakeholder expertise and input
  • 8. UKAS Accreditation – recent developments • In the UK, UKAS is accrediting most of the major “diagnostics areas” to ISO15189 • UKAS also accredits EQA (“Proficiency Testing”) schemes and general hospital quality management schemes ( based on ISO9000) • Recent requests have been received for Adult residential care homes and caring for the dying schemes
  • 9. Accreditation underpinning healthcare services UKAS Accreditation ISO/IEC 17011 Organisations that conduct Evaluations or ‘Conformity Assessment’ Certification or Inspection (ISO/IEC 17065 or 17020) Testing/Diagnostic and measurement services (ISO 15189, 17025 or equivalent e.g. ISAS/IQIPS) Service that includes taking and testing of samples e.g. Blood/biopsies Service that includes the identification of a disease or characteristic Process or service e.g. care pathway, dental service Defined Clinical Service standard The Patient
  • 10. • Consider the activity - is the clinical service, or a significant component, considered to be conformity assessment? • Consider the criteria for competence - does existing criteria exist? Does this identify the type of recognition? • Consider the status of the assessing body - what is their function, what recognition do they provide? What standards do they work to? Independent and impartial? • Consider the assessment process – type of assessment, competence of assessors, framework within which it is delivered, level of rigour, frequency there may be more than one option! Accreditation, Certification or Inspection?
  • 11. Accreditation Certification Inspection  Relevant international standard (or mapped equivalent) used as criteria used for accreditation e.g. ISO/IEC 15189, ISAS standard  Used for attesting the competence of evaluation or ‘conformity assessment’ bodies  Assessment conducted in accordance with EU Regulation and ISO/IEC 17011  Delivered by the national accreditation body (UKAS)  Assessment of scope of activities using trained competent peer assessors  On site Initial assessment followed by annual surveillance activity and full reassessment every 4 years  Cannot rely on self-assessment  Recognised internationally where mutual recognition arrangements exist  Recognised by UK Government as the highest level of control in the conformity assessment chain  Audit of system, process or service by an independent third party  Certification standard can be an international standard or stakeholder developed standard/scheme  ‘Certification Body’ can have competence recognised to perform audits by accreditation (ISO/IEC 17065)  Certification will be awarded on an on- going basis and certified service will require periodic surveillance/recertification audits  Trained and authorised auditors used with defined competence – may not need to be full peer assessment as required by the scheme  Objectives of certification must be defined and compliance demonstrated before certification awarded  Multiple certification bodies can be used, or a single body – accreditation can be used to ensure consistency  UKAS accredited certification is recognised by UK government and also internationally where relevant mutual recognition arrangements exist  Inspection of a system, process or service by an impartial body (differing levels of independence are defined)  Inspection standard needs to be defined and accepted by relevant stakeholders  ‘Inspection Body’ can have competence recognised to perform inspections by accreditation (ISO/IEC 17020  Can be used for one-off, ad-hoc evaluation as well as on-going scheduled regime  Trained and authorised inspectors used with defined competence – may not need to be full peer assessment as required by the scheme  Objectives of inspection process must be defined  Can be used where an incremental quality improvement is needed  Multiple inspection bodies can be used, or a single body – accreditation can be used to ensure consistency  UKAS accredited inspection is recognised by UK government and also internationally where relevant mutual recognition arrangements exist
  • 12. Standards of competence for bodies conducting assessments of Clinical Services • Currently a variety of approaches – direct accreditation and certification/inspection • No need to develop criteria for these bodies – there are existing international standards • Guidance could be developed to support the international standards • Specific requirements could be identified to apply to UKAS and other assessment bodies e.g. use of lay assessors to assess clinical service Developing accreditation and standards
  • 13. How accreditation works Requirements of accreditation Impartiality, integrity, independence Competence Appropriate resources and facilities Performance demonstrated to be to required standard Capable of sustaining the required level of performance
  • 14. Who conducts the assessment? • Competence criteria defined for assessors • Competent Peer Assessor(s) used to cover repertoire/scope of service • Lead Assessor – UKAS Assessment Manager • Lay assessors • All assessors trained and authorised by UKAS • All assessors monitored and evaluated to ensure competence is maintained
  • 15. UKAS – Inspection & Social Care UKAS is developing accreditation for inspection of health and social care services using the accreditation standard ISO / IEC 17020:2012.  ISO 17020 states that inspection can be to “provide information with no determination of conformity” Three separate pilot assessment programmes are currently underway for,  Accreditation of inspection of care providers by independent inspection bodies.  Accreditation of reviews of healthcare services provided by the UK National Health Service (“NHS”) healthcare providers.  Accreditation of inspection of caring for the dying ( in the last hours and days).
  • 16. Accreditation of inspection of care homes by independent inspection bodies • There are around 30,000 care homes as well as other types of care providers in the UK and these are inspected by regulatory bodies in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland for regulatory compliance. • There are also a number of private inspection bodies operating in the UK that provide inspection services to care homes and care providers. • The private inspection bodies assist care homes to improve the quality of care, to prepare for regulatory compliance where applicable, and in some cases for awarding star ratings to recognise achievement of inspection standards.
  • 17. Accreditation of inspection of care homes by independent inspection bodies cont.. • UKAS has considered that the accreditation of inspection of care homes by private inspection bodies is in the public interest and in 2014 announced the initiation of a pilot assessment programme. • Following a process of consultation with interested applicants and stakeholders, 3 applicants were selected for piloting the UKAS assessment process for accrediting inspection of adult social care using the standard ISO/ IEC 17020:2012 (Conformity assessment – Requirements for operation of various types of inspection bodies).
  • 18. Accreditation of Inspection etc – some issues • These observations are based on early experience of assessing in our pilot scheme – later this year UKAS will publish a “Lessons Learned” review. • At this stage there is no national standard only “proprietary standards” – however UKAS aims ensure the outcomes are similar and comparable and meet the purpose of the inspection. • Our purpose: “To assure and improve the quality of care provided by residential care homes and other care providers in the UK.
  • 19. Accreditation of Inspection etc – some issues • UKAS also hopes to use the requirements of the Government Regulatory Body (“Care Quality Commission”) to further inform the standards. • Traditionally ISO 17020 is used for the inspection of products, but in this pilot study we are working with a “personal service” and UKAS had to be sensitive to the special circumstances of providing a service to elderly people.
  • 20. Accreditation of Inspection etc – some issues • Therefore, much work was required to understand how to apply the standard to an inspection of a service, with observations on the: - Patients - Elderly people - Relatives of the patients - Interviewing persons using and providing the service
  • 21. Accreditation of Inspection etc – some issues • This was quite a challenging process both for the “cared for” persons and difficult for us to observe. • UKAS needed to ensure that the underpinning systems and processes were inspected in order to deliver a sustainable service. (“It all continues to work when we are not there”)
  • 22. How accreditation works Requirements of accreditation Impartiality, integrity, independence Competence Appropriate resources and facilities Performance demonstrated to be to required standard Capable of sustaining the required level of performance
  • 23. The first accreditation “RDB” • RDB – is now accredited for residential care homes (but not yet dementia or learning difficulties persons) • Therefore as yet there is no accreditation awarded for specialist care – UKAS may extend scope as and when more experience has been gained • The RDB Scheme gives ‘star ratings’ – as this was our first assessment, this was also a challenge of how to assess this. • As we move to the surveillance process, one area of focus will be to compare outputs of the IB’s inspectors for consistency.
  • 24. The assessment team for RDB • Assessment team – always more then one person including witnesses. • Complete competence criteria developed and provided for Technical Assessors • Qualified nurses with experience in care homes are trained as the Technical Assessors. • Further steps:- possibility of a British standard being developed by BSI for the inspection of care homes in the coming year.
  • 26. Accreditation of inspection of care homes by independent inspection bodies cont.. • The pilot programme is now underway and is expected to be completed by end of 2015. • On completion of the programme and accreditation of successful pilot applicants, UKAS will open applications to others who wish to apply for UKAS accreditation for inspection of adult social care providers. • UKAS has just awarded accreditation to ISO/IEC17020:2012 to the first inspection body in the pilot scheme • It is hoped that the UK Government Regulator for care homes will be able to recognise adult residential care homes which have been inspected by a UKAS accredited inspection body and take this into account in their programme of audits.
  • 27. Conclusions • In the UK there is a growing awareness of the positive role that accredited certification and inspection bodies can play in helping raise quality standards in care homes and other “patient pathways”. • This helps adult residential care homes provide improve high quality care for the users of their services and assurance for Government, Regulators and the families of those persons in residential care homes.
  • 28. Conclusions 2 • These are early days for UKAS in this area and we have much to learn. • Progress so far is positive and it is hoped that the application of accreditation in this will deliver positive benefits for the users of these services. • Sharing of experience. • More information: jon.murthy@ukas.com or info@ukas.com
