The Respiratory Competence Assessment Tool (R-CAT) was developed and published in 2008.


From February to September 2012, the Expert Reference Group was reconvened to review the competence document in light of current policy direction contained within documents such as Quality 20:20 and Transforming Your Care. This exercise is now completed and a supplemental document has been produced to be used alongside the original R-CAT document. To download a copy of the review document, please click below.
