2 Guidance for using the Mental Health Feedback Tool Introduction This tool has been developed to capture the service/care experience of patients in community and inpatient Mental Health settings. So far used in the context of Coventry and Warwickshire Partnership Trust’s ‘Equal Partners’ Strategy, it is intended to drive forward a culture of real, meaningful involvement and listening to feedback from patients, carers, staff and the public. The purpose of the tool is to gain information and insight to: Improve services provided Influence how services are delivered Share best practice In development, the tool has been through several iterations, each time revising it to make it simpler and easier for patients to complete. There are two versions of the Mental Health Feedback Tool catering for different groups of people with mental health needs at different stages of their pathway: Mental Health Patients in the Community Inpatients in Acute Mental Health Units The Community Tool contains the Friends and Family question in full followed by 14 questions covering a broad spectrum of care delivery. The friends and family question is not included in the Acute Inpatient Tool due to conflict with other organisational processes to fulfil friends and family requirements. The Acute Inpatient Tool needed to be shorter, concise and very clear to take into account that people in an acute mental health inpatient setting may be experiencing considerable distress and find it hard to cope with a large number of questions and indeed more complex questions. Both forms use smiley faces to enable people to give feedback. During the tool development, people said they found this more helpful and that the pictorial indicator made it easier to connect with a response. The tool is used before people are discharged from the service. Patient Advocates are used to collect the information. Page 1

3 Patient Advocates Patient Advocates are members of staff who do not work directly in the service where the real-time survey is conducted. Patients said they felt comfortable with this. The Patient Advocate role has been effective as it gives the patient a sense of impartiality, confidentiality and an opportunity to be honest and open. Patient Advocates support people to speak their mind and give their true views confidently and without fear of judgement. Patient Advocates are able to build relationships and encourage and support patients to share their experience. From this, patient stories emerge which can be shared as good practice and as a platform for service improvement at both service and strategic levels. Patient Advocates are able to ensure that a positive approach to the feedback is developed and are able to feed back issues early so that services are improved quickly. Patient Advocates need a good knowledge of the organisation and its supporting services so that they can correctly signpost patients to other services or agencies when necessary. Preparation The visits are planned in advance. It helps to build trust if patients know beforehand they will be asked questions about their care. Guidance to support staff Find a quiet place to talk, with as few distractions as possible. 1.Ensure that communication is clear; break information down into smaller chunks so the person is not overloaded. Allow them time to think about what you have said. Keep your language simple and avoid jargon. 2.Watch the person – they may tell you things by their body language and facial expressions. 3.Take your time and don’t rush your communication. Allow time for the person to think and to answer the question. 4.Use gestures and facial expressions to reinforce what you are saying. 5.Be aware of and respect their personal space. This will vary from one individual to another. Page 2
