Building an evidence base for CQC regulators

How the Happiness Programme can help

Whatever part of the UK and Ireland you’re in, the Happiness Programme can help provide an evidence base for activities and outcomes that match criteria set by the different regulators that assess the quality of care provided.

By stimulating movement, enhancing emotional well-being and creating social engagement, playing interactive light games using the magic table 360 is an effective way of delivering outcomes across the different standards used by the regulators.

In addition, other features of the Happiness Programme, such as staff training, community engagement initiatives and involving friends and family, helps to satisfy additional criteria.

The reporting features of the Happiness Programme then help to document these outcomes, building the evidence base required.

Powerful usage data

This starts with the magic table 360 which, when connected to the internet, automatically uploads all the usage and session data, providing a deep insight into how the magic table 360 is used at any given location.

We then add to this usage data with personalised feedback and evidence to build up and complete the evidence base required.

Introducing the care standards

The 5 standards of care (used by the CQC in England) that the Happiness Programme can contribute evidence to are:

Introducing the Key Lines of Enquiry

Within these 5 standards, are specific Key Lines of Enquiry (or KLOEs) which form the questions that are asked of care organisations, and for which evidence is sought, to help score the organisation.

Within each KLOE are typically 3-8 enquiry prompts which are labelled with a letter (identifying which standard it is) and a number, identifying the KLOE. It is these specific enquiry prompts that the Happiness programme can support and help a care organisation to satisfy the criteria for.
