2 Joining Forces – Maintaining the Pace of Change Overview

3 Joining Forces – Maintaining the Pace of Change Peninsula Heart & Stroke Network Avon, Gloucestershire, Wiltshire and Somerset Cardiac & Stroke Network Dorset Cardiac & Stroke Network South West Stroke Research Network

4 Joining Forces – Maintaining the Pace of Change An extended group of people with similar interests or concerns who interact and remain in informal contact for mutual assistance or support. A system of people or things: a large and widely distributed group of people or things such as stores, colleges, or churches that communicate with one another and work together as a unit or system Networks? The Clinical Research Network. Supporting research to make patients, and the NHS, better NIHR 2011 The treatment, care and rehabilitation of cardiac and stroke patients involves a diverse range of organisations. The role of the Network is to bring these organisations together, with patients and carers to improve services. AGWS C&S Network Website 2011

5 Joining Forces – Maintaining the Pace of Change Stroke continues to be a regional priority with good progress in part of the care pathway particularly discharge and community care Networks and the SHA are working together to try and improve performance related to Stroke vital signs particularly the sign that 80% of patients admitted with a stroke spend 90% of their hospital stay in designated stroke facilities – set out in the Operating Framework for the NHS Ongoing improvement in reporting systems / datasets remains the other key area of work Individual Networks also have regional priorities………………… With Thanks to: Richard Gleave - Director of Project Improvement South West Strategic Health Authority

6 Joining Forces – Maintaining the Pace of Change Dorset Improving Psychological Support after Stroke Project (NHS improvement Pilot project) –showing significant improvements in levels and quality of psychological screening and support in the community setting utilising better collaborative working within existing teams Direct to CT/Acute Stroke Unit pathways (RBCH) Know Your Pulse & TIA video Campaigns: the Life Channel –The Network developed 2 campaigns to raise awareness of the importance checking your pulse and TIA signs and symptoms which ran in GP surgeries across the county Phantom Head (DCH) –The radiology department at Dorset County Hospital trained all of their radiographers in CT head using a phantom head funded through the Network With Thanks to: Sara Leonard – Network Manager Francis Avis – PPI Lead DIPSS training - rehabilitation Dorset Stroke Network

7 Joining Forces – Maintaining the Pace of Change Roll out of the assessment bed (PHT) –Following a successful pilot at Poole Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, the stroke assessment bed has been rolled out across the whole county Training Accreditation (UKFST) -Network wide collaboration to develop three stroke training programmes (care of the stroke survivor, psychological support after stroke and managing aphasia) for out of hospital care, submitted for UK Forum for Stroke Training (UKFST) accreditation. GRASP-AF –So far, the Network has recruited 36% of practices to download the GRASP-AF toolkit. Since August, Dorset has seen a 5% increase in Warfarin prescribing. Patient and Public Involvement Model –Quoted as example of good practice by National Audit Office – February 2010 –Presented at National UK Stroke Forum in Glasgow – December 2010 Care Quality Commission Life after Stroke Review –The organisations within the Network were ranked as some of the best in the country for their stroke care in the recent CQC review Francis Avis presenting at UKSF on PPI Dorset Stroke Network (2)

8 Joining Forces – Maintaining the Pace of Change PENINSULA HEART & STROKE NETWORK Continuing to provide Service Improvement Managers in most key clinical / geographical areas to support local priorities and work programmes Clinical Education Facilitators in most main Peninsula sites facilitating the implementation of stroke competencies in acute and community organisations and nursing homes – over 2000 people have received training in a number of different formats Advising Commissioners on the local application of the NICE quality Standard Supporting the development of pilot models for Early Supported Discharge e.g. North Devon for 12/12 With Thanks to: Martin James – Network Lead Michelle Roe – Network Manager Peninsula Heart & Stroke Network

9 Joining Forces – Maintaining the Pace of Change Development of clinical guidelines e.g. Hemicraniectomy referral guidelines and providing advice on new technologies such as Direct Thrombin Inhibitors Supporting the implementation of GRASP-AF tool in primary care Developing information packs on AF for primary care Management guidelines, Treatment Decision Tree, Patient decision aid for Antithrombotic Therapy. Continued development of the Peninsula Stroke data set and facilitation of data collection Supporting organisations in National projects e.g. A project at the RD&E looking at increased access to TIA clinics PENINSULA HEART & STROKE NETWORK Peninsula Heart and Stroke Network(2)

10 Joining Forces – Maintaining the Pace of Change With Thanks to: Sunita Berry – Network Director Thrombolysis - Working collaboratively across 9 acute hospital sites has enabled AGWS Cardiac & Stroke Network to deliver 24/7 Thrombolysis in 7/9 sites. - The Network Stroke Consultant rota supports all sites on a 24/7 basis, with Thrombolysis being delivered via all emergency departments. - Between April 2010 and March 2011, over 200 patients received the service, about 22% doing so via the Network Stroke Rota. Using data to improve clinical care - The network has been working with trusts to enable the use of data collection to support improvements in clinical care. - As part of the Accelerating Stroke Improvement Incentive Scheme Trajectories programme (ASIIST), the network asked trusts to compete to demonstrate the most improved care. 1 st place - Salisbury Foundation Trust 2 nd place - University Hospitals Bristol 3 rd place - Great Western Hospital in Swindon AGWS Cardiac & Stroke Network

11 Joining Forces – Maintaining the Pace of Change Atrial Fibrillation A successful atrial fibrillation project has enabled the AGWS Network to claim the top spot in the National Improvement Programme for atrial fibrillation. - 6/8 PCTs in the Network have participated with 17,569 patients have been registered with the GRASP-AF tool. - This is a contribution of over one-third of all patients registered on GRASP. -Early results show that between 3-5% of additional patients in the network are now receiving anticoagulation. - Further development of the project in 2011/12 will aim to concentrate on increasing the numbers receiving anticoagulants and recording and improving the time spent in therapeutic range for patients. AGWS Cardiac & Stroke Network (2) Care Quality Commission Life after Stroke Review - PCTs in the AGWS network performed particularly well. - 6/8 PCTs were classed as being amongst the best of the 152 PCTs reviewed. - One PCT was judged as better and another, fair. - Swindon PCT which was ranked 15th in the national survey

12 Joining Forces – Maintaining the Pace of Change Recruitment From April to March 2010/11 83% into category 3 RCT’s % increase overall - 59% in original area - 152% in expanded area Involved with expanded area BASELINEBASELINE
