Comprehensive holistic assessment is key to the delivery of high quality and cost effective care to patients in the community. Assessing patients in the community requires the skills to examine, not just the patient, but the environment in which they live and in which care will be delivered. Delivering compassionate care as outlined in Compassion in Practice (2012) will underpin this module.
