The Framework articulates the core capabilities describing the knowledge, skills and behaviours required by all healthcare staff working with young people who are transitioning to adult services. Currently there is no national framework that addresses this need.
This Framework is part of a wider programme of work and will build upon and be complementary to previous and current work undertaken by NHS England and Improvement (NHSE/I) and the Burdett National Transition Nursing Network. It will support this ongoing work of the need for the successful transition of young people between children’s and adult services as identified by the NHS Long Term Plan.
The current draft capabilities have been developed by a national steering group of experts as well as young people and parents. We are going out to wider consultation on the capabilities themselves which will form the key part of the Framework document. The Framework will also describe the context and background.
The development of a Core Capabilities Framework will provide the health sector with a starting point to identify education and training currently available, as well as identifying any gaps. In the future this will assist the application of a consistent approach to training for the successful transition of young people between children’s and adult services. It will be applicable to both clinical and non-clinical staff across all levels of roles in the workforce.
Whether you are a healthcare member of staff, young person, parent or carer your views are very important to the development of the Framework and thank you for taking the time to complete this survey.
The survey will be live from Monday 12th July until Sunday 22nd August 2021.
