The Assessor handbook provides information to assessors and homes on our audit methodology. It includes information on the context and objectives of assessments, principles underlying assessment activity, methodologies and techniques to be applied in assessing and guidelines for reaching conclusions and recommendations from assessments. 

Assessment modules are an adjunct to the Results and processes guide. They are a tool to assist assessors to focus on the key systems and processes of homes that ensure the provision of quality care and services for residents. They too can be used by the homes to assess their own systems.
