Patient Stories Workshop Welcome
Getting to know each other (a little better)
What I’m bringing to the workshop… What I want to take away from the workshop… What could get in the way of my learning… Something others may not know about me…
What do I / we want to ACHIEVE or CHANGE as a result of this workshop?
Patient Stories setting the context
Let’s look at the bigger picture! !
(Gray et al, 2005) Quality improves as we improve the match between our services and the needs of the people who depend on them.
“Asking patients what they think about the care and treatment they have received is an important step towards improving care for patients in hospitals and other health services.” Professor Sir Ian Kennedy, Chair, Healthcare Commission, 2004
The common theme of these new measures for patients is improving quality. It must be the basis of everything we do in the NHS.
“Considers and acts on the views and experiences of patients who use the trust’s services.”
“The Trust needs to consider other approaches to get real feedback from patients and, importantly, their families.”
Develop a range of methods to capture patient experience and feedback
So what are Patient Stories?
Patient stories are… …recorded interviews with patients / service users about their experience of receiving care.
Aim of Patient Stories ‘To find out about patient experiences of being cared for & to… …recognise & celebrate the good things & change the not so good things.’
How are patients recruited to tell their story ? Randomly selected patients invited to participate Explanation and information sheet Consent agreement form signed Mutually acceptable time agreed
Selection of Patients Random Selection criteria requires that patients: –have been cared for ……. days –can process and are able to recall the experiences of hospitalisation –other criteria specific to the area
Interview Process Interviews take place in an area acceptable to patients Interviews are audio taped / digitally recorded
Patient Story-telling Prompts Tell me about when you became unwell… Tell me about when you went into hospital or when this episode of care began… What do you remember most? What was your care like? What were some of the significant memories of your care? What, if anything, surprised / worried / pleased you about your care? Tell me more about...
Stages of Story Analysis Stage 1: Listening and mapping Stage 2: Peer review Stage 3: Identification of areas for quality improvement and indicators of good practice
Presentation of Findings 1.Present to the disciplines mentioned in the stories 2.Develop an action plan with key stakeholders with review dates to address issues arising from stories 3.Written report
Mapping out a Patient Story Write the patient code in the centre of your paper Beginning in the top right corner, working outwards and clockwise, record key words that represent the events of the story. These key words may represent significant incidents or describe a phase or episode of care (e.g. admission, manipulation of my knee, when I was told my diagnosis) These key words can form sub-centres around which significant phrases or words should be recorded This process should be continued until the map represents the meaning of the interview

Themes Identify areas valued and areas for improvement Once you have agreed the areas identified, move into themes Once you have the themes for each Clinical Leader, look at themes across the organisation
Action planning process Ensure the action plans are developed with the key stakeholders Ensure action plans are maintained and reviewed at regular intervals Celebrate the success of implementing your action plans Articulate the impact of implementation to key stakeholders
Examples of improvements made to patient care Noise reduction Patient privacy or confidentiality Attention to detail Appropriate use of names Active listening Cross infection Pain management Discharge planning Bob’s story
Time for a Break
Patient Stories - hearing the patient’s voice
1st 2nd 3rd = THE NURSE How do you see the situation? What does this situation mean to you? How do you feel about what you heard? What can you celebrate and what would you wish to change? = THE PATIENT How do you see the situation? What does this situation mean to you? How do you feel about what you heard? What can you celebrate and what would you wish to change? = THE MANAGER How do you see the situation? What does this situation mean to you? How do you feel about what you heard? What can you celebrate and what would you wish to change?
When people who are not used to speaking are heard by people who are not used to listening, then real change occurs!
Stuff Happens! Questions and ‘stuff’ raised from Day One

What will I / we do differently as a result of this workshop?
