Sharing the Learning from deaths in Mental Health
This workstream aims to improve the safety and reliability of healthcare and reduce harm whenever care is delivered. People who use our services should receive care in environments that are safe and conducive to optimizing their wellbeing. The focus of this work stream is sharing the learning from deaths with patients and families, and across the South of England Mental Health Trusts that make up our collaborative.
- 100% of member organisations will share the learning around deaths in mental health
The 3 ‘L’s (Learn, Live, Lead) is the Collaborative’s model for building the capability in Quality Improvement (QI) skills of its members. Using the 3 ‘L’s model allows members to assess, plan and implement their QI learning journey. The journey is split into three different levels of competence; the Learning level, the Live level and the Leading level. We have identified a number of subject areas that we believe will equip members with the QI skills needed to implement and lead an improvement project.
- Increase the number of members who Learn, Live or Lead QI by 30% by March 2019
We use our workstreams
to help produce our innovations.
Our 2 cross-cutting themes
Delivering and co-producing person and family centred care and creating a culture of collaboration are the Collaborative’s two cross cutting themes. They form the foundations for the Collaborative, they cut across both of the above workstreams and are “the way things are done in the Collaborative”.
Delivering and co-producing person and family centred care
This cross cutting theme aims to put the people who use our services and their families at the heart of all we do. One of the ways in which we aim to do this is through ensuring people with lived experience have a variety of opportunities as members to participate in improving healthcare.
- Honest disclosure and being open
- Family and carer involvement at every stage
- Family as care givers
- Patients as partners in their care
- Improving understanding of self-care
- Co-production in quality improvement, innovation and design of services
Creating a culture for continuous learning and safety
In this cross cutting theme we define continuous learning as “a systematic way of capturing everyday concerns and acting on them, followed by a cycle of learning and improvement,” these are essential components of high performing organisations and are the components we will aim to achieve in this workstream. A continuous learning system can only be created if the organisation has the right cultural foundations that will support its functioning.
- Communication and team work
- Leadership and psychological safety
- Teamwork and communication
- Continuous learning
- Reliable processes
- Improvement and measurement
