Description:
The terms strategies, policies, guidelines, procedures and protocols are often used interchangeably. There may be some degree of overlap, and the distinctions between them are sometimes not evident. The purpose of all of the above is to guide staff in providing best outcomes for service users and high-quality services. International, European and national policies and strategies influence and shape the development of organisation-level strategies and policies as outlined in Figure 1 below. Organisation-level strategy is the key overarching framework that guides the development of policies, guidelines, procedures and protocols at organisation level. Within this region, A Health Strategy for the People of the North-East, 2003, which was developed based on national strategies, is the framework which will guide future policy development. Broad definitions, with a distinction between clinical and non-clinical applications, and the continuum associated with the process are outlined in Figure 2 on page 7.
