Acute Care Portfolio

Improving outcomes and experiences for people in acute care

The Improvement Hub (ihub) Acute Care portfolio brings together the Scottish Patient Safety Programme (SPSP) Acute Adult and Older People in Acute Care improvement programmes to support improved experience and outcomes for people in acute care.

This ihub portfolio brings together the experience and learning from both programmes over recent years.

By working in collaboration with our delivery partners we are helping to design and deliver improvement programmes that will:

  • Reduce harm experienced by people in acute care
  • Deliver a programme to improve outcomes for frail people in acute settings, and
  • Focus on system issues to help teams improve outcomes for people in any care setting.

Two critical areas of focus for improvement work in the care of older people in acute care care are the identification and immediate management for older people with frailty and/or delirium.
