2 What is world class healthcare? Where are we now? Where do we want to be 2 years 5 years 20 years Call to action for the journey

3 Cabinet Secretary NHSScotland Healthcare Quality Strategy At its heart is a simple but very ambitious aim: “To make the NHS in Scotland a world leader in the quality of health care services that it delivers.” “That aim is not just good for patients, it is also right for staff.” Scottish Parliament, Debate 13 May 2010

4 Quality Strategy built on people’s priorities CCaring and Compassionate health services Collaborating with patients and everyone working for and with NHSScotland C providing a Clean and safe care environment C improved access and Continuity of care CConfidence and trust in healthcare services C delivering Clinical excellence

5 Person-Centred - Mutually beneficial partnerships between patients, their families, and those delivering healthcare services which respect individual needs and values, and which demonstrate compassion, continuity, clear communication, and shared decision making. Effective - The most appropriate treatments, interventions, support, and services will be provided at the right time to everyone who will benefit, and wasteful or harmful variation will be eradicated. Safe - There will be no avoidable injury or harm to patients from healthcare they receive, and an appropriate clean and safe environment will be provided for the delivery of healthcare services at all times.

6 Quality Safe Effective Person Centred Quality occurs more frequently when the three ambitions are delivered together


8 Everyone gets the best start in life and is able to live a longer healthier life at home or in the community. Healthcare is safe for every person every time and every experience of healthcare will be positive, delivered by staff who feel supported and engaged. Primary Driver Secondary Driver Aim All services are co- produced There are no needless deaths There is no needless harm Staff experience and well being is improved Hospital Standardised Mortality Ratio are best in class for Scotland Clinicians review all unexpected deaths as a matter of routine and continuously learn and make improvement No patient is subjected to needles harm due to unreliable systems and or processes Any episode of harm is reviewed as a matter of routine and continuously learn and make improvements The Care Experience of patients and their families is improved Leadership – executive leaders demonstrate that everything in the culture is patient focused Nothing about me without me Healthcare systems deliver reliable, quality care The care team installs confidence by providing collaborative, evidence based care Patients get the outcomes of care they expect Partnership working with communities served as equal partners Asset based service redesign Services reflect an asset based approach (place- based, relationship-based, citizen-led and promote social justice/equality) Outcomes based commissioning Staff are recruited for values Staff governance standards are adhered to consistently An asset based approach to staff well-being is taken Compassionate communication and teamwork are essential competencies ‘One set of rules’ for all Community benefit in all employee contracts

9 World Class Healthcare The people of Ayrshire and Arran have the best possible start and live longer healthier lives in settings of their choice whenever possible. Care is co-produced to deliver no needless waits There are no needless deaths There is no needless harm Every experience of Healthcare is positive All staff who deliver healthcare feel supported engaged and valued

10 Do you agree? Take 10 minutes to discuss at your tables Is this what world class healthcare looks like? Tell us what is missing

11 Culture and leadership focus – high value organisations define and relentlessly and consistently demonstrates values Specification and planning: high-value organisations base operational and core clinical decisions on explicit criteria and organise effectively Infrastructure design: High-value organisations create highly effective teams at the micro level, to meet the needs of patient and families. High performing organisations

12 Measurement and oversight: High-value organisations use measurements of clinical operations for internal process monitoring to drive improvement. Staff focus - high value organisations ensure staff involvement and ownership The learning organisation: high value organisations examine positive and negative deviations in care and outcomes, using the information create common tools to improve outcomes.

13 How will we get there?

14 Your culture is an outcome of the way employees behave. So how are we encouraging our employees to behave? Lived values = positive behaviours Relentless modelling of positive behaviours delivers positive attitudes. Culture

15 Current values Team work Efficiency Equality Excellence Care Improvement

16 What behaviours are required to build a culture of excellence? Select your top five behaviours from the cards at your table. As a board what is your role in the delivery of ‘lived’ values to improve culture ?

17 What’s in a Wordle? Insert wordle

18 Does this Wordle capture our ambitions? How should we promote these behaviours? What should be the consequence for those who don’t adhere to them? What’s in a Wordle?

19 What we think we “know” Better quality costs more money If you want to ― get “Safe Care” it will cost MUCH more money

20 Now here is the “truth” Good quality care costs LESS than poor quality care Safe, harm-free care SAVES Money. It costs less to provide, and avoids costs of correction.

21 Learning from the Henry Ford Health System

22 ? Safe care Unsafe care Harm Free Care So, where to focus our efforts?

44 The stories behind the data Andy

45 As a Board Member, do you know the names of the people who have been harmed or killed in your hospitals and healthcare systems because of unsafe, unreliable systems ?

46 As a Board Member, do you know how many clinicians have been damaged as a result of unreliable or unsafe systems and processes of care?

47 What approach would you want the Board to take if it was your mother, father, partner, child ?

48 What assurance does the Board need that we are providing world class health services and that we are learning from events. Discuss at your table and agree the top 2 things that would provide you with assurance

49 Ah … but! Safety improvement excellent in pilot sites Person centred care excellent in some areas Spread taking for all taking longer than we need to drive improvement New commitment to - 20% reduction in Mortality - 95% patients receive harm free care - Improved person centred care Capacity and capability building is required to enable change and improvement

50 Capability and capacity Capability – the people have the confidence and the knowledge and skills to lead the change. Capacity – having the right number and level of people who are actively engaged and able to take action. Helen Bevan, Journal of Research Nursing 2010; 15:

51 Take 10 minutes at your table to discuss … How the organisation can build the capacity and capability necessary to drive quality improvement at pace and scale

52 Many PeopleFew People Shared Knowledge Deep Knowledge Continuum of Improvement Knowledge and Skills Experts Operational Leaders Change agents Middle Manager Level All staff What skills are needed? A key operating assumption of building capacity is that different groups of people will have different levels of need for Improvement knowledge and skill. Our approach will be to make sure that each group receives the knowledge and skill sets they need when they need them and in the appropriate amounts

53 What do we have currently?

54 What next? Take five minutes at your table to discuss as a Board Member what you will personally do to drive or promote the Quality Agenda
