• significantly undermine efficiency of services or care provision; and

• allows for risk in service costs/efficacy in a patient care pathway;

Supporting individuals to own skill sets which will help them in deciding if an investigation is a suitable outcome of the review/assess these elements in context will enable clear decision making on:

• areas of performance that are a concern;

• what should be included and excluded within the investigation;

• identify terms of reference; and

• set report expectations and requirements.
