EA consultants significance for level of performance




Swedish consultants think that health should better included in EA.

They have a broad understanding but they don't utilise this in their EAs.

The level of approval is a key criteria used by consultants to judge how much assessment to undertake. The level of performance ie what is undertaken, good enough practice.



Consultants are in strong position to guide performance.

They think practice should be improved but make choices that restrict their role. Maintain a good enough level of performance.

Barriers
Consultants think that reaching beyond the approval level is not their job.

Facilitators
They recognise the value of a broad approach to health.

Consultants need to take a more leading role in pushing boundaries of best practice.
