Course Information:

HIQA launched the updated National Standards for Residential Care Settings for Older People in Ireland in July 2016.

The Health Information and Quality Authority (HIQA) is an independent authority established to drive high-quality and safe care for people using our health and social care services in Ireland. HIQA’s role is to develop standards,

inspect and review health and social care services and support informed decisions on how services are delivered.

The Health Information and Quality Authority (the Authority) aims to promote continual improvement in the quality and safety of the residential services provided to people living in residential care.

These outcome-based Standards represent a revision of the previously published National Quality Standards for Residential Care Settings for Older People in Ireland (2009) and they

incorporate the learning from the Authority’s inspection and registration of designated centres for older people.

These revised Standards place a stronger focus on quality of life and a person-centred approach to care for all residents — including residents with dementia. The Standards provide a framework for providers for the continual development of person-centred, safe and effective residential services.

The Standards also provide people living in residential care with a guide as to what they should expect from residential services. At the same time, they provide the framework for the Authority to assess whether residential services are providing high-quality,

safe and effective services and supports for the people who live there, in line with the requirements of the Health Act 2007

The 35 standards focus on outcomes which enhance the ability of people to participate in,

and contribute to, daily life. These include:

  • promoting the rights of people and respecting their autonomy, privacy and dignity
  • facilitating people to be as independent as possible and to exercise personal choice in their daily lives
  • safeguarding and protecting people from abuse
  • providing people with accessible information and assessment to ensure that the appropriate supports are made available to meet their needs
