15 TMP-GEN-0015 v14.0 Response rate: 52%

16 TMP-GEN-0015 v14.0 Response rate: 52% How you rate us

17 TMP-GEN-0015 v14.0 Better Practice 2014 “Choose your own adventure” One-day workshops Risk, Information, Complaints Understanding accreditation QUEST Quality Standard Promoting high quality care

18 TMP-GEN-0015 v14.0 Better Practice Awards QUEST for home care CALD workshop Industry needs analysis Residential and community/home care Promoting high quality care

19 TMP-GEN-0015 v14.0 >10% sample on any visit 55,000 resident interviews pa Observation is part of the assessor toolkit Resident responses, staff-resident interactions Not all residents can reliably give information Short observational framework (SOFI2) Better understanding the care recipient experience (res. care)

20 TMP-GEN-0015 v14.0 Licensed from Bradford University Strictly controlled training and use UK Care Quality Commission Scottish Care Inspectorate Care and Social Services Inspectorate of Wales Australian Aged Care Quality Agency SOFI2 – what is it

21 TMP-GEN-0015 v14.0 “Using the tool has given me greater insight into residents experiences than any other methodology I have ever used.” “I now have graphic evidence to back up my judgment about the quality of communication with residents.” “The tool also really helped me focus on how disempowering poor communication can be, and highlighted that some recent staff training had not been successful.” Some CQC feedback

22 TMP-GEN-0015 v14.0 Train-the-trainer, strict selection criteria Four-day program for trainers, delivered by Bradford trainers Observation tool and manuals customised for the Australian context, Quality Agency audit methodology Field pilot involving SOFI-trained trainers SOFI2 – Australian pilot

23 TMP-GEN-0015 v14.0 “While not specifically assessing staff performance I am more aware of how staff are interacting with residents and the potential impact on the residents.” “It enabled me to follow up on ‘quiet’ residents to ensure they were receiving appropriate emotional support, choices and decisions and activities and lifestyle.” “I used SOFI2 in a dementia specific unit and it gave me a good sense of normal interactions between residents and staff and the environment in which the residents live.” “The observation time reinforced my general impressions of good staff interactions from earlier in the day.” What our SOFI-trained assessors said

24 TMP-GEN-0015 v14.0 Generally positive, understood the purpose of the trial Is the tool available for use by aged care managers? How will it be reported? Time management Aged care managers

25 TMP-GEN-0015 v14.0 Social Care-Related Quality of Life (SCRQOL) - An attempt to measure and monitor the value of social care services Personal Social Services Research Unit University of Kent London School of Economics University of Manchester SCRQOL – a study

26 TMP-GEN-0015 v14.0 Domains Personal cleanliness and comfort Safety Control over daily life Accommodation cleanliness and comfort Food and nutrition Occupation Social participation and involvement Dignity SCRQOL

27 TMP-GEN-0015 v14.0 Staff interviews covered their perceptions of residents’ current SCRQOL and expected levels absent care home Resident interviews focused on their experiences living in the home, their views about staff and the help they receive, and their current care needs Observations – usually two hours (4pm-6pm) Interviews and observations

28 TMP-GEN-0015 v14.0 Needs in the most basic domains of peoples’ lives well met overall, but not so well in areas such as social participation, occupation and control Some divergence between regulators’ ratings of homes’ performance and SCRQOL scores Differences may reflect emphasis by homes and by the regulator on management systems and processes and resident health outcomes rather than social care factors and quality of life Some findings and conclusions

29 TMP-GEN-0015 v14.0 Aged care managers, staff Quality of care = clinical outcomes Quality of life = lifestyle, activities Residents, relatives Quality of care = what’s acceptable Quality of life = resident/family/community expectations Balance/emphasis varies according to health status Quality of care is the degree to which acceptable standards are met Quality of life is the degree to which individual well-being meets personal expectations Campbell (2007)

30 TMP-GEN-0015 v14.0 “Domains” of quality (based on stakeholders) Environment Services Interactions Personal Health Campbell

31 TMP-GEN-0015 v14.0 Overall quality (v. good/excellent) DON/Quality manager- 93% Resident/family- 70% Care staff- 63% Clinical quality (v.good/excellent) DON/quality manager- 95% Resident/family- 67% Care staff- 73% Campbell

32 TMP-GEN-0015 v14.0 Collaborative, involving governments, NGOs (Alzheimers), public advocates, Georgia Health Care Association Started in 2003, voluntary High participation rates 95% homes 70% residents Linked to incentive payments through Medicaid The Georgia Quality Initiative

33 TMP-GEN-0015 v14.0 Tracks “technical measures” as well as satisfaction scores Technical data submitted monthly Falls Pressure sores Pain management Restraint Catheter use Unexpected weight gain/loss Staff turnover Staff satisfaction survey at least annually Family satisfaction survey at least annually Measures

34 TMP-GEN-0015 v14.0 Residents/relatives 89% rated their home as excellent/good, willing to recommend Staff 75% rated their home excellent/good, willing to recommend Overall satisfaction score – 2013 vs 2004 (out of 100) Families – 78 vs 71 Residents – 78 vs 75 Staff – 63 vs 59 Georgia QI 2013 results

35 TMP-GEN-0015 v14.0 Perceptions vary as to:- What it means ? Quality of care Quality of life SCRQOL Its measurement? Those in charge of the system Those at the front line Those the system is designed for Quality

36 TMP-GEN-0015 v14.0 Thank you

37 TMP-GEN-0015 v14.0 Risk indicators Change of management systems (incl. IT) Change of key personnel Change in business strategy/restructuring Change of approved provider/ownership Changes in processes, procedures not supported by appropriate training Change in resident numbers or mix – sudden or gradual Building programs The problem is not the risk! Problems occur when risk is not appropriately managed.
