Fit to Care aims to:-

  • Guide healthcare professionals to facilitate and deliver high quality respiratory care in line with national evidence-based guidance
  • Aid healthcare professionals to assess their own competence to deliver such care, and identify and seek appropriate training and ongoing professional development supported by their employers
  • Support all healthcare professionals to be accountable and trained to provide such care to a given standard, thereby reducing variation in care and ensuring patients can expect to receive high quality evidence based respiratory care irrespective of who is delivering such care or where in the community that care is being provided
  • Provide a reference for service managers to ensure the provision of appropriate educational support programmes for employed healthcare professionals
