- Make sure that all documentation is filled correctly (CPA sections on Rio/care notes, care plans) and distributed
The service user is at the centre of their care and this is the focus of the entire CPA process. In our scoping for this unit of learning, we were able to identify excellent examples of best practice which we’ll continue to share across the Trust.
