1 Professor Jean Penny, University of Derby Embedding Improvement Science in Training Programmes: Why Bother?

2 All working life in and with NHS  Diagnostic Radiographer and teacher  National improvement roles 1994 – 2008  Improvement educator and advisor 2008 – present  Awarded OBE for services to NHS 2003  Visiting professor University of Derby 2008 Improvement: 19 years and still learning

3 Healthcare will not realise its full potential unless change (improvement) making becomes an intrinsic part of everyone’s job, every day, in all parts of the system. Batalden, P. B et al. Quality and Safety in Health Care 2007;16:2-3

4 Embedding Improvement Science in Training Programmes: Why Bother? ◦ What is Improvement Science? ◦ Why bother embedding it into training programmes?

5  Who likes change?

6  Any improvement is a change ◦ not every change is an improvement ◦ but we cannot improve something unless we change it Eliyahu Goldratt Goldratt E (1990) Theory of Constraints, North River Press, Massachusetts

7  Any improvement is a change  any change is a perceived threat to security ◦ there will always be someone who will look at the suggested change as a threat Eliyahu Goldratt

8  Any improvement is a change  any change is a perceived threat to security  any threat to security gives rise to emotional resistance ◦ you can rarely overcome emotional resistance with logic alone  Eliyahu Goldratt

9 “ Anyone who thinks you can overcome emotional resistance with logic was probably never married”

10  Any improvement is a change  any change is a perceived threat to security  any threat to security gives rise to emotional resistance  emotional resistance can only be overcome by a stronger emotion Eliyahu Goldratt

11  What to change? ◦ Pin point the core problems  What to change to? ◦ Construct (simple) practical solutions  How to cause the change? ◦ Induce the appropriate people to invent such solutions ◦ they must own the problem Eliyahu Goldratt Goldratt E (1990) Theory of Constraints, North River Press, Massachusetts

20 PDSA cycle for learning and improvement Act what changes are to be made? next cycle? Plan objective questions and predictions (why) plan to carry out the cycle (who, what, where, when) Study complete the analysis of the data compare data to predictions summarise what was learned Do carry out the plan document problems and unexpected observations begin analysis of the data We planned to ( state the basic plan) In order to ….. (tie it back to the aim) What we did was….. (brief description of actions) Looking at what happened, what we learned from this was….. (lessons learned) What we plan to do next is …. (state next plan)

21  The Model for Improvement breaks things down into small steps and works on the ‘little dots’ – at the frontline  These small steps should be part of the answer to the question of how to move the ‘big dots’  Align all improvement projects to strategy

24 To develop health and social care students who are curious about how they could improve their service, and who are receptive to different ideas and able to bring about the necessary changes by applying a variety of tools and techniques in their own context Improvement in pre-registration education: aim – to raise awareness to improvement for better safer care 2006

25  ‘my duty, part of my professional role, I should get involved’  ‘be prepared to extend role and take on new responsibilities’  ‘small problems have a big impact on patients’  ‘anyone can take part – we’re all responsible’  ‘I have the skills’ Tribal consulting, External evaluation 08/09

26 ‘…..I have interviewed over 100 applicants of newly qualified staff …..One of the questions asked was " Service development is everyone's responsibility, …have you been involved in any changes happening while you have been on a placement? It was obvious …that one particular University's candidates had all identified an area for improvement in practice.. and had tested and evaluated them during their stay there. Some of their ideas were still in use and others were not. Some of the ideas were interesting and made us think about looking at those areas for improvement ourselves. …..it was very clear that the candidates from other local universities had not been involved in any changes ……we employed those that could clearly discuss how to introduce and evaluate a change in practice or improvement to patient care’. Nurse Manager, Neonatal Unit, North of England, March 2011 It is making a difference......

27  Engagement of key stakeholders ◦ Barriers in engaging with practice ◦ Engaging Faculty and colleagues  Resources ◦ Time ◦ Funding ◦ Human Resources and Extra work ◦ Rooms  Timescale / Timing ◦ University structures i.e. plan everything in advance ◦ Difficult time as currently revalidating ◦ Difficulty getting everybody in the same room at the same time  Attitudes ◦ Student Attitude and receptiveness ◦ Staff Attitude and receptiveness Tribal Consulting, External evaluation of 08/09

28  The main challenge to sustainability is ensuring that key faculty and senior academics truly understand and value improvement as a concept. When this happens improvement is prioritised and sustained in an ever pressurised curriculum. Replies from 33 universities (69%) of the 48 universities on the NHSI contact list

29  Work with your team /colleagues: value differences  Really understand the problem  Develop aims and measures: What are you trying to achieve?  Measure for improvement: How will you know a change is an improvement?  Gather change ideas: What changes can you make that will result in the improvement you want?  Test change ideas (PDSA cycles) before implementing  Learn from things that do not work  Link frontline changes to strategic objectives

33  ‘Competence: what individuals know or are able to do in terms of knowledge and skill  Capability: extent to which individuals can adapt to change.... and continue to improve their performance’  ‘These days there is so much knowledge available that we risk drowning in it Learning about how things are interconnected is often more useful than learning about the pieces’ Fraser Greenhalgh (2001) Coping with complexity: educating for capability
