OPMH Project Call for Evidence and Focus Groups

Posted By : swr_2722

  • Do you work in older people’s mental health services?
  • Do you want to get involved and influence the development of the new career and competency framework?

As part of the commitment to Older Peoples Mental Health practice a specialist competency and career framework is being developed. The core competency framework will clearly articulate the core competencies, as well as more specialised competencies that will skill up the whole workforce to meet the needs of older people with mental health issues.

Commissioned by HEE we are seeking to hold a national conversation about the knowledge, skills and competencies needed for all those supporting older people with mental health needs.

We are holding focus groups in Leeds and London and will be using social media and a short survey to gather as many views as possible to feed into the work.

To take part in one of our focus groups or submit an example of good practice please visit our project page here or the Health Education England webpage for the project.
