What is the challenge your project is going to address and how does it connect to your chosen theme?
Working across organisational boundaries is a consistent barrier to implementing sustainable models of care that have been proven to improve patient outcomes (Buurtzorg model, Esther). The traditional approach to review and tackle the so called ‘problems’ to system working with little or no success. If we are all aiming to deliver patient centred care, why are we not able to be integrated. We propose using a new approach that ensures the people we care for are the star of the show and their improved outcomes are really what matters no matter who is involved in delivering that care. Governance, finances, regulation and policy all impact on this so lets find a way to use our strengths from each sector and organisation to make this happen.
What does your project aim to achieve?
To identify the barriers and challenges faced when teams are integrated
Identify the true needs of the people we care for
Identify the strengths of the organisations and systems involved in care delivery
This will be linked to the Transforming Integrated Care in the Community (TICC) European social research programme to enable the development of a blueprint that will provide a guide to effective integration of services
Key Stakeholder and beneficiaries will include the people we care for, Community Health, Social care, Primary Care, Third sector and inform regulation and inspection
How will the project be delivered?
Using a solution driven method of interaction (SDMI) approach. This will include local and national workshops including utilising Q community members. We will also appropriately use liberating structures methods to uncover insights and learn together
We will also have the TICC project partners as stakeholders in this separate but essential project
What and how is your project going to share learning throughout?
This will be shared through the Q community but nationally and our local community.
The generation of a blueprint that will include the findings from this project will be shared widely through the already established TICC project comms. This includes newsletters, press releases. This links with our local STP and future development of PCNs to meet the NHS long term plan
