Structure of queercare documentation
Queercare runs on a system of principles, policies, and protocols.
Principles outline assumptions, moral guidance, medical evidence and organisational guidance that shape the care we give- these are broad overarching documents, giving the shape of what care should look like in general or in a given area.
Policies are based on principles- they describe broadly the desired behaviour of a system of care, and provide guidance on implementing it.
Protocols are how to implement policies, as clear, step by step instructions.
