Welcome to Talking Health Taking Action: Your One Stop Shop for Self-Management Support

Quality Assured Training and Support

Training, Assessments and Supervision

Organisations that are licenced to deliver SMRC self-management interventions are required to adhere to SMRC fidelity standards.

Fidelity compliance is monitored each year via the annual activity report that all UK licenced organisations are asked to submit to Talking Health.

We can offer training and support at all stages of your Programme development including:

  • Tutor training/supervision/refresher training
  • Assessor training/supervision
  • Lead Training/supervision
  • X-Training
  • Fidelity Health Check - to demonstrate adherence to the requirements in the Fidelity Manual

Click here to view our portfolio of training and support and drop us a line at info@talkinghealth.org to discuss your specific training needs.

Most organisations across the UK also work within a voluntary self-assessed code of practice called Stepping Stones to Quality (Ss2Q) which was originally co-produced by voluntary sector organisations, Primary Care Trusts, the NHS Expert Patients Programme (EPP) and the Department of Health.

A key element of Ss2Q is the training and support framework which contains agreed best practice in the recruitment, training and support of Tutors and Trainers.

Ss2Q is a voluntary self-assessed code of practice. However organisations that would like to obtain independent verification of their programme can do so through the QISMET Certification scheme.
