Welcome to the BCN Practitioner Library, an online library containing practitioner-related resources organised around the components of the care system. The library's puzzle design demonstrates how the care system is the sum of many integrated parts and points to the importance of the systems strengthening agenda. As you explore the puzzle, you will find basic information, tools, videos, articles, and other resources related to each component and subcomponent of the care system. Please note that this practitioner library is still in development.

Oversight Systems


Oversight systems are the components of the care system that deal with regulating and monitoring formal services, particularly alternative care services. They include the inspectorate, responsible for inspection of services/care settings and ensuring minimum standards are met. They also include the licensing and registration system, through which organisations become licensed service providers.
