Assess, Plan, Implement & Evaluate – APIE

Assess, Plan, Implement & Evaluate APIE

Assessment Phase

A thorough assessment is carried out with all service users admitted into our care.  Every aspect of the individual is assessed, so that a robust care plan can be created.  This initial assessment process can be seen in more detail on the admissions page.

Planning Phase

A systematic approach to care planning is essential: all care providers, professionals, and purchasers are involved with the development of each individual’s care plans.  The principles of goal planning are implemented to set achievable targets for the individual, according to their capabilities.  Needs are highlighted and strengths are nurtured to enable each individual to achieve their fullest potential.  Measurable objectives are essential for the development of the individual.

Implementation Phase

Once an individual has been fully assessed, and their care plans have been agreed, it is implemented.  The service user and their appointed care team will follow the care plans closely.  The care plans cover all aspects of their health, from eating well to their daily medication requirements.  Day to day activities will be listed, along with routine tasks such as bathing and laundry.

The care plans are implemented for an agreed period of time.  During this phase the goals and outcomes that were established in the planning phase will be monitored.

This information provides an accurate record for the service user to take forward.

Evaluation Phase

In the evaluation phase, all the monitored information is reviewed, and evaluated in preparation for the follow-up assessment.  The process is cyclical and continuous.  This ensures that the care plans are current and therefore relevant for the service user.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
