This SOP Implementation Gap Analysis Tool is for the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) - Community Teams.
It should be completed by no fewer than two members of the CAMHS MDT but ideally by the whole team. Examples of practice consistent with the SOP as well as gaps in implementation should be recorded in the “further information” section.
What is the purpose of this SOP Implementation Gap Analysis Tool?
It will be used to:
- identify current practices and whether these are consistent with the SOP
- Provide opportunities to communicate challenges to implementation of the SOP
- To communicate gaps in implementation of the SOP
- To assist the CAMHS Service Improvement Group in advising on future service planning and development
This is the first step of a process in the development of a CAMHS quality framework.
This is not intended to be a self assessment tool but it is to provide an initial overview of the service against the standards set out in the SOP. Please provide any information that you deem relevant to support your response. The GAP analysis tool should be completed in association with the CAMHS SOP. Individual sections have a reference to the relevant section and page number of the SOP for additional information.
