Include Users & Carers in the identification of the Multiple perspectives.
Identifying the competing demands of the decision making process
· Scrutinise the process of decision making.
· What was the context of the decision making process?
The focus needs to be the process of reaching a decision, NOT the repercussion of the decision made.

Be aware, presenting such a complex decision where poor practice or Safeguarding / Whistleblowing may be required, as this will lead into a much longer complicated assignment.
A useful way to address this assignment would be to imagine that you are a qualified nurse and the CQC came to visit and asked why a certain decision was made as regards User care.
