This article examines the Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats analysis tool commonly known as SWOT and how support workers can use this in decision-making, problem-solving and in identifying where changes in clinical practice are needed. The importance of this will be highlighted in the relevant sections of the Code of Conduct for Healthcare Support Workers and Adult Social Care Workers in England (Skills for Care and Skills for Health, 2013) and for nursing associates in the recently amended Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) (2018) code. The article will start with an overview of the SWOT analysis tool before examining the four separate parts. The importance of the analysis stage will be highlighted.
