Capabilities Framework

The Capabilities Framework will underpin a number of the FRRHH's key activities in working to define, review and set standards of competence for organisations as well as medical and non-medical personnel delivering healthcare in remote, rural, and humanitarian healthcare environments.

Membership Assessment 

The capabilities framework and specially developed scoring criteria is used to inform an initial interim membership assessment process that will robustly assess individuals and their ability to work within remote, rural, and humanitarian healthcare and award them use of Member or Fellow postnominals. 


The faculty will provide an accreditation service that will accredit external educational offerings against the FRRHH capabilities framework and RCSEd extensive educational standards. This links to the membership assessment service as individuals who present certificates and qualifications as part of their application will highlight new courses and resources that the faculty can then approach to offer accreditation services.
