ACHIEVING SUSTAINABLE QUALITY IN SCOTLAND’S HEALTHCARE A ’2020’ Vision
Our ‘2020 Vision’ Our vision is that by 2020 everyone is able to live longer healthier lives at home, or in a homely setting. We will have a healthcare system where we have integrated health and social care, a focus on prevention, anticipation and supported self management. Whatever the setting, care will be provided to the highest standards of quality and safety, with the person at the centre of all decisions. There will be a focus on ensuring that people get back into their home or community environment as soon as appropriate, with minimal risk of re-admission.
How can we keep people like Margaret at home?
Person-Centred - Mutually beneficial partnerships between patients, their families, and those delivering healthcare services which respect individual needs and values, and which demonstrate compassion, continuity, clear communication, and shared decision making. Effective - The most appropriate treatments, interventions, support, and services will be provided at the right time to everyone who will benefit, and wasteful or harmful variation will be eradicated. Safe - There will be no avoidable injury or harm to patients from healthcare they receive, and an appropriate clean and safe environment will be provided for the delivery of healthcare services at all times. The Healthcare Quality Strategy for Scotland

Barriers “we’re too busy” –Smaller test, avoids re-work “we’re doing it already” –Measure to prove it, failure free –Ask five people “doesn’t fit our priorities” –Align test with priorities
