Doing your homework Know your audience Know the process Scope and learn the drivers Do your background research – what IS the evidence? Network for example BCs Pilot interest, find your champions, use them. Be prepared for a fight!

SERVICE TO BE PROVIDED THE CASE FOR CHANGE Current Provision Strategic Context Drivers for Change – Gap between current position and strategic need Option Appraisal DESCRIPTION OF PROPOSED CHANGE Non Clinical Impact Objectives/Benefits Stakeholder Impact RESOURCE CONSEQUENCES ( Costs, Pay, Non pay and Capital) Funding of Start Up Costs Sources and Value of Funding/Income Costs v Funding IMPLEMENTATION PLAN RISK ANALYSIS / CONTINGENCY PLAN FOR PREFERRED OPTION MONITORING/EVALUATION EXIT STRATEGY
Speaking the right language? Q1 What strategic drivers would you use to IMPACT the need for your Trust to approve your business case?

Q1:Drivers: make it visual
Q2 How much would it cost? Provide a breakdown of set up and recurrent cost implications for the Trust.
Q2: Cost: Revenue – recurrent: Pay Capital – one off: Non-pay Other considerations Increased costs: –ILLs –Administration time –Administration resources –Resource expectation Increased income –Departmental accounts
Clinical Query:OutcomeCost saving Does the use of local anaesthesia in vitreoretinal surgery compromise the patient? There was no evidence of compromise to surgical outcome or patient safety. Change from 80% GA to 80% LA procedures. £140,000 p.a. Do patients with anaemia treated with Desferrioxamine require routine medical retina follow-up? Evidence review found no value in routine follow up of these patients. Saving 50 outpatients appointments p.a. £5,500 Patient (2) specific queries relating to challenging viral retinitis and fungal endophthalmitis Rapid review of patient management, therapy and discharge saving on lengthy inpatient stays. £6, 356 (based on 2 weeks stay only) Is it necessary for patients to withdraw aspirin use prior to oculoplastic surgical procedures? Evidence highlighted that it was not detrimental to patients to continue their aspirin therapy for a range of oculoplastic surgical procedures. Reduction in surgical waiting times. Facilitated use of short notice surgical cancellations. Shortened length of pre-operative assessments. Is it safe for patients with intraocular gas tamponades to travel by air following vitreoretinal surgery? Evidence showed that it was not safe for patients to undertake any activities at high altitude or to receive nitrous oxide anaesthesia Work with the VR Evidence in Practice Group resulted in patients leaving theatre with a warning wristband. The wristband is now provided by BOC on the purchase of intraocular gas internationally and the team achieved a National Award for Evidence in Practice.
