9 What is the Microsystems Model?

10 The Microsystems Model
Three key components The 4 P’s Framework Tools and techniques Teamwork

11 The 4 Ps P P P P Patients Who are they? What do we need to know about them? People the employees; How to involve them more? What do staff think? Processes How do we run the things? What are our systems? Patterns How do things vary? What causes variation? …aiming to build a comprehensive understanding of the microsystem and how it works.

What is it? “How to use…” - Four headings: Why use it? How to use it? Notes and tips

18 Teamwork Team approach Shared vision, mission, information
Agreed priorities, improvement plans Regular meetings, learning events Regularly review and improve team climate Learn simple improvement tools Kaizen approach, PDSA cycles Improvement tools/techniques Review, reflect and plan together How are we doing? Where next?

20 Wasting time in Ipswich

21 Evaluating microsystems in the NHS …some early comments from sites:
Liked the ability to adapt materials (e.g. tailor questionnaires) to differing settings Have been selective in which surveys and questionnaires have been used Gone at their own pace Have variably used the 'tools’ - different bits found to be useful at different sites Focus on staff views and issues has been popular

22 Evaluating microsystems in the NHS …some early comments from sites:
Took a while to get to grips with what microsystems working was and how to apply Lot of things (too much?) fitted into the sessions Pace of work - monthly sessions - has been ‘challenging’. Prompt or pressure? Have used it to build on previous work Hearing about each others’ experiences had been possibly the most useful aspect

23 Microsystem working… Involves everyone (…the whole team, not just a ‘select few’) Comprehensive and flexible (…not ‘problem focussed’ or highly prescribed) Values staff views, experiences and welfare equally (…avoids improvement at staff expense) Draws together different strands of improvement work (e.g. access improvement and workforce development) Builds on any previous improvement projects (…provides somewhere to go after project ends)
