PIMET - Policies
Overview of what the detail that follows is all about. Provides a framework of what the
staff need to be aware of. Has to explain who the policy applies to what it covered and the
purpose of it, should also mention the relevant legislation that is meant to be explaining.
Should give a specific person who is responsible for the policy in the organisation. Also know
who to go to if you feel something is going wrong.
This is where is says exactly who the policy works and who will do what. Sets out
requirements from staff and managers should also identify what training needs to be carried
out concerning work force and should be clean on exactly what needs to be done by when
and who is going to do it. Very clear, everyone should be very explicit on who does what and
what is required.
Establish how policy will be monitored to see who effective it is on doing its job and
should be range of different monitoring activities. Observations on staff can be internally or
externally inspected. Obtain feedback from service users in for of questionnaires or focus
group may be just comments box. Analysing data is important that may be stats of males and
females employed compared to genders applying for job, or disabilities or ethnic minorities.
Record of all staff training on this policy including dates and attendance, when and who.
Important to make sure everyone is doing what they are supposed to do and that the policy
is doing what it says it is meant to do.
The key to evaluation is about measuring to outcomes of the policy. To see is the policy is
doing what it is supposed to and that everyone; service users and staff are getting the most
benefit from this policy. So whatever policy says it's doing it measures is it is actually being
done. This should allow them to identify what bits they are doing wrong and where they
need to improve. During evaluation they are thinking about how successful the policy is and
how things could be made even better. It is important that evaluations are formalised. Senior
staff should carry it out and there should be time allocated for it to happen otherwise it
won't happen. What you end up with at the end of the evaluation process is a list of things
that needs to be done.
Targets for improvement
It is a natural progression from evaluation. Target setting turns what needs to be done
into a reality. They set targets to make sure them things get done and achieved. This means
putting together an action plan. In action plan there will be wheat needs to be a achieved
who will take responsibility for doing it , clearly states when it's going to be done by and also
identify what will be the evidence that it has been done. If in place whatever needs to be
done will get done or else someone will be held responsible. Overall responsibility will rest
with the person at the beginning who will be responsible for this policy.
