Quality Improvement Week - Tuesday 20 October: Getting Back to Good

Tuesday 20 October - Getting Back to Good

The second day of Quality Improvement Week will focus on our Back to Good journey.

In the morning there will be a chance to get involved in a peer review workshop, we'll talk about one of the key projects we've been working on so far as part of Back to Good, sexual safety, and you can find out more about the Trust project that is focusing on developing our culture as an organisation.

In the afternoon you'll hear all about our work to reaffirm our commitment to being smoke free and all the work we've done to support our inpatient wards to roll this out. There will also be a live question and answer session on Back to Good, with a panel of staff and service users you can ask questions to.

Peer review workshop - 9.30am to 10.30am

Peer inspection is often used in external accreditation processes and allows for an in-depth assessment of a service by fellow colleagues in the field either internally or externally.

It gives us an opportunity to see the service from a 360 degree perspective and is an excellent tool for identifying shortfalls in quality, as well as areas to be celebrated and be proud of. The outcome of a peer inspection enables focussed attention on specific quality improvements and sharing of good practice.

Session leads: Anita Winter, Associate Director of Patient Safety, Julie Walton, Head of Care Standards and Mark Adams, Team Manager

The session is an opportunity to be a part of the emerging work to achieve best practice keeping the people we provide care to and the people who work within our services safe at all times.

Smoke free wards - 2pm to 3pm

On the 21 September 2020 we renewed our commitment to being a smoke free Trust. Smoking has been a long-standing challenge for us, particularly within our acute inpatient environments.

At this session you will hear from the experiences of Burbage, Maple and Stanage Wards about how they prepared to go smoke free, what going smoke free on the wards has been like, what they’ve learnt and the challenges they encountered along the way.

Pre-recorded sessions

Below are a series of pre-recorded sessions that talk about the things we've learned during COVID-19.

  • Back to Good Programme Board - who we are and what we do
    Ever wondered why you get asked for progress reports, updates and what are you doing to help us get Back to Good? This is to provide the Back to Good Programme Board with information to ensure that they can provide strategic direction, help unblock issues which are stopping progress and ensure that there’s the oversight and assurance in place to make sure that we achieve our goals.

  • The work of the workstreams: progress so far
    Seven workstreams have been established to co-ordinate and deliver the Trust's aim of getting Back to Good. Here, the workstream leads provide an update on the individual workstream’s aims and the progress made so far.
