Care Industry Staff Capability Assessment (CISCA)

CISCA Logo - growing caring teams


What Is CISCA?

CISCA is the assessment tool specifically designed for teams in the care industry to illuminate teams’ biggest strengths, gaps and development opportunities.

CISCA uses data to create insights to drive organisational clarity, focus investment, change and performance.

CISCA is the window through which we can see the correlations between staff capability, engagement, and their ability to deliver high quality care, assessed through self and customer feedback.

CISCA Purpose

The purpose of CISCA is to capture the current snapshot of the entire team’s care capability and performance, and by comparing the views of different feedback providers allows us to understand any blind spots that might be present.

It shines a spotlight on the most significant gaps for the team and organisational capability, engagement and culture, and provision of care, by understanding the current and desired performance, and additional feedback across multiple areas.
