We’ve been working on ways to make the Companion Volume Implementation Guides (CVIG) more useful across the various stakeholder groups, and so have been developing an online User Manual to assist. Our main focus is on improving ease of access to the information contained within the CVIGs, as well as including supporting materials provided by stakeholders. There are a range of users who rely on the CVIG, so we have tailored the User Manuals to meet these various needs by dividing the CVIGs by user group.

The 2 key aspects to the draft User Manuals are the breakdown of information by user group and the addition of supporting information.

The breakdown of the CVIG material by user group is aimed at streamlining navigation through to the most relevant material. A full version of the recent CVIG is contained in the first tab, so you have easy reference to it at all times.

The addition of supporting materials is intended to aid interpretation and delivery. At the moment, additional materials are included in the text, but we are anticipating featuring them more prominently, and attributing all extra materials to the individual or organisation who provided it.

The user manual is very much a work in progress, and we need your input – tell us what you think works, what doesn’t, and what you’d like to see added.

To do this, go to the CVIG User feedback survey here, where you’ll find links through to the draft CPC and CPP CVIG User Manuals as well as the feedback form. Your responses will be invaluable in further developing and finalising the structure and the content of the CVIG User Manuals.
