Event description

Description


Health Education England (Wessex) and the Wessex Patient Safety Collaborative are hosting the 4th annual Wessex Safety, Quality and Improvement Conference on 8 October 2019.

The theme of the conference is ‘Safety, Quality & Improvement and the NHS Long Term Plan; what does this mean for me and my job?".

Who should attend: Those involved in helping to drive innovation, improvement and patient safety activities in health and care who have a desire to share knowledge, successes and experience to support improvement for patients across Wessex.

What the content will be: The programme for the day will include energising sessions and motivational case studies nationally and from across the Wessex region showcasing excellence in patient safety and improvement. A poster display of local work alongside exhibition stands from industry partners will also form part of the day.

The conference Chairs are Dr Julia Harris (Asscoiate Dean Patient Safety, HEE Wessex) and Tracy Broom (Associate Director Patient Safety, Wessex AHSN). We are awaiting confirmation of a number of speakers, but confirmed national and local plenary speakers include:

  • Dr Aidan Fowler, National Director of Patient Safety, NHSI
  • Pauline Brown, Chief Nurse, Health Education England (South)
  • Bill Gillespie, Chief Executive, Wessex AHSN
  • Dr Sarah Noble, Emergency Medicine Consultant, Hampshire Hospitals NHS FT
  • Mandy O'Dell, Critical Care Nurse, Royal Berkshire NHS FT

Why would I attend: To meet others involved in safety and improvement work; to hear about success stories of work and initiatives taking place in patient safety and improvement; and consider how these can be spread across the region – starting with you and your organisation!

Registration: Online registration is required to attend this event. More details, including a programme for the day, will be shared with attendees in advance of the day. On the day, delegates are to report to the Mayflower Foyer for registration. Refreshments, poster display and exhibition stands will be available from 8.30 am; the conference will start promptly at 9.00 am.

Breakout Sessions: As part of the event you will also have the opportunity to attend two breakout sessions and will need to register for these when booking a conference place. Spaces are limited and will be offered on a first-come first-served basis so we recommend early registration if wishing to attend a particular session. Brief details can be seen below:

11.15 - 12.10

Room 1: Co-designing Quality Improvement

  • Sarah Williams (Solent NHS Trust) and Patient Partner; Side by Side: Co-designing a Service User QI training package. Patients and service users are often part of our teams delivering QI projects, but they noted they’d like some introductory QI training to help with confidence working with clinical teams. In collaboration with Southampton Children’s Hospital, we won a bid to co-design a module. This session describes that process from the perspective of one of our patient collaborators, gives a brief overview of the materials and training package that has been developed and a chance to trial some of them.
  • Nathan Clifford (Southern Health NHS FT); The Benefits of Involving Service Users and Carers in any service design and improvement. Southern Health has embarked on a journey of Quality Improvement - involving numerous week long workshops. What has been pivotal to all of this is the meaningful involvement of service users and carers. The contribution they make to the improvement of services and the ideas they generate and inspire is exceptional. How could we possibly design and develop a service without the input of those that use our services being in the room, offering their experiences. The impact of this is profound, not just on the service, but the staff in the room and on the individuals themselves. We would like to share Southern Health’s commitment to this, and what we have learnt so far.

Room 2: Staff Support and Wellbeing

  • Phil Godfrey (HEE Wessex); How the Wessex Making Every Contact Count (MECC) model can empower healthy behaviours. MECC is about supporting organisations and their staff to maximise on the opportunity they have with the public in promoting health and enabling them to make changes to improve their health and wellbeing. This session will give a brief introduction to the Wessex MECC model, how it can help your service users and how it fosters a supportive environment for your staff.
  • Hannah McClean and Alison Richards (Salisbury NHS FT); The Compassion Rose Project. The project uses the crafting skills of volunteers and staff to reintroduce the nursing tradition of showing compassion /respect to a deceased patient through placing a flower with them after death. The project combats compassion fatigue allowing staff to personally acknowledge a death; improves compassion satisfaction and anecdotal evidence suggests improvements in care after death; offers opportunities for all staff within an acute trust to contribute towards end of life care; provides a catalyst for initiating conversations about death and dying; and changes attitudes about end of life care. Projects do not need substantial funding to significantly impact quality improvement; this project has huge potential for replication in other trusts.
