This project lays the foundation for the development of a sustainable and unified approach to learning and development by bringing together policy, practice and evidence, and interfacing with regulatory requirements that have recently been strengthened for hospices and that are inspected by the Care Quality Commission (CQC). It commences with CHaL’s vision for learning and development, follows with project description and methods, and summarises the initial scoping conducted to underpin the strategy. The subsequent analytical and conceptual development of the strategy is described, alongside a rational for aligning thinking with the CQC essential standards that are inspected. The project had a unique opportunity to link in to a set of three national workshops for hospices arranged by Children’s Hospices UK (CHUK) and working with CQC that served to act as a consultation forum; this process is described.
