The 10 Essential Shared Capabilities (ESC) are a
description of the core aspects of practice that
support effective implementation and delivery of
mental health care. The ESC have been derived
directly from work with users, carers and mental
health personnel. To support their introduction a
learning pack was developed giving examples of the
10 ESC as they relate to current practice.
A pilot programme across England was developed
to test the acceptability and potential utility of these
materials and this paper reports on the evaluation of
that pilot programme. Facilitators (n=75) and learners (n=579) were asked to rate each of the seven modules
contained in the learning pack. A number of
recommendations have been made to improve the materials that are being acted upon.
