Co-designing improvements with patients
Monday 20th January 2014 3pm – 4pm

Participants will be introduced to experience-based co-design (EBCD) as a method of improving the quality of service in collaboration with patients.
Macmillan Values Based Standards
Tuesday 21st January 2014 3pm – 4pm
Presenter: Janice Sigsworth, Director of Nursing and Scott Fitzgerald, Programme Manager Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust.
Imperial College Healthcare Trust has been a pilot site for the Value Based Standards which in 2009 Macmillan Cancer Support commissioned work to research and develop a standard for cancer care services, expressing human rights principles as specific behaviours. The standard has been developed through an 18 month engagement process with over 300 healthcare staff and people living with and affected by cancer across the country. In Improving Outcomes: A Strategy for Cancer Care the government has confirmed its support for the Macmillan Standard, recognizing that the application focuses on ‘what matters’ to patients. At Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust the values have been used as a framework to develop and implement improvements for patient experience by local leaders within the Trust. ICHT implementation of the Macmillan values based standard has founded on a co-design principle where patients and staff work together to design the interventions that improve experience for staff and patients in clinical areas.

Presentation on a Commissioning tool and guidance which describes how by the implementation of an integrated pathway of care for frail older people, commissioners can increase levels of harm free care. This is based on available evidence to demonstrate how the pathway can improve quality of care but also be cost effective and will cover:
• improving the patient experience
• improving clinical outcomes
• reducing harm
• improving value for money
The tool will includes suggested contractual levers and incentives that commissioners can use in their negotiations with providers to ensure an integrated approach and cross-organisational implementation of the pathway.

Thursday 23rd January 2014, 11am -12pm
Presenter: Nicola Venus-Balgobin, Project Manager; Older People with dual sensory loss awareness raising project, Sense
Going in to a healthcare environment, can be frightening for us all; am I ill, is it serious, what will happen, will the doctor be nice? Now imagine you can’t see the signs to find your way to the department, you can’t hear your name be called, your too frightened to ask someone for help in case you can’t understand them and when you finally get in to the appointment you can’t hear what is being said and go away none the wiser. This is sadly what being a patient who is deafblind is like.
This webinar will look firstly at the ways in which you can work to identify individuals in your care who are deafblind, and act upon this to ensure health care is delivered in a way that is caring, compassionate and meaningful. Secondly, we will look at real life patient experience stories from deafblind people and their families. This will feed into a discussion on the tools and resources that are available to support you when you are working with people who are deafblind and their families, as well as some top tips for communication, access and mobility. Time will also be given to how on a departmental or area level cultures and practices can be changed and adopted to make things better not only for deafblind patients but for all patients in your care. Plenty of time will also be given for questions and discussion.
