Toolbox of resources developed to support best practice in residential disability services

A ‘toolbox’ of resources to support residential services for adults with intellectual disabilities in implementing best practice and improving the delivery of quality services has been developed.

This very useful resource brings together tools, guides, policies, templates and signposts to online resources from Health Information and Quality Authority (HIQA), the HSE and other national bodies.  It is aligned to the 18 outcomes used by HIQA to inspect services.

The toolbox was developed by the HSE Social Care Division and the HSE Quality Improvement Division Quality Improvement Programme Team. The Team was established to work with HSE residential services for adults with intellectual disabilities, supporting services to improve the delivery of quality and person-centred safe services.

The toolbox is available both in PDF format and online by clicking here.

Please contact paddy.mcteague@hse.ie if you have any queries or difficulties accessing the toolbox or its content.
