Academic Health Science Network Making Every Contact Count (MECC): A project to implement best practice in Foundation Trusts and Local Authorities
Background What we know about MECC It needs to be driven through all levels of an organisation Staff need a lot of support (and permission) to do MECC They need to know how to do it including raising issues that have strong social taboos We need strategies for keeping it on the agenda
Aim The aim of this project is to work with staff in four partner organisations, two Foundation Trusts and two Local authorities to implement MECC and to identify what helps or hinders this. The project will consider how MECC is implemented within organisations and the lessons learned from this will inform future implementation across organisations.
Project Outline Stage 1: Priority Setting Stage 2: Skill Development Stage 3: Evaluation and lessons learned Stage 4: Dissemination
The 4 projects Healthy ageing in Gateshead QE Hospital MECC champions network in South Tyneside Location and workforce based development in Darlington Endoscopy care pathway in Sunderland City Hospital
Impact on Systems and Patients The approach taken ensures that senior staff in each partner organisation are fully involved and to ensure MECC is built into policy and practice in a sustainable way. This way, frontline staff delivering MECC have the support necessary to use the skills developed.
