RCN Position Statement on EU Report

01 September 2014
RCN has been involved in an advisory capacity, on a European report which has mapped the position in relation to the education, regulation and training of Health care assistants (HCAs) across the EU. The report also makes a series of recommendations in relation to HCAs. The RCN has produced a briefing and position statement on the report and will continue to work closely with key stakeholders to shape further work in this area.
While the report and recommendations are broadly welcomed by the RCN and emphasise many factors that have been high priority for the RCN for many years, there are some aspects of the report, which need to be considered carefully.
