Summaries of evaluation work

Below we share learning from ihub improvement work supported by the Evidence and Evaluation for Improvement Team.

Multiple case study evaluation of 'What matters to you?' in day-to-day practice →
In this multiple case study evaluation, we bring together what three healthcare organisations have been doing to successfully apply and sustain 'What matters to you?' in their day-to-day practice. 

Case study about reducing delayed discharge from hospital →
In this case study, we share what East Ayrshire Heath and Social Care Partnership (HSCP) did to reduce the total time patients spend delayed in hospital with no more need for hospital care, whilst also increasing the reliability of systems delivering safe, legal and person-centred discharge. 

Evaluation of a new service model →
This work describes the support we offered to Health and Social Care (HSC) Moray with the evaluation of a new community nursing model piloted in the Forres area that embeds a collaborative way of working between housing and healthcare.

Evaluating personal outcomes focused ways of working →

Here, we bring together learning from evaluation of personal outcome focused interventions to provide some practical guidance for those planning, commissioning and delivering personal outcomes focused approaches and seeking to monitor and evaluate this work. We also describe our evaluation support for the Midlothian wellbeing service.

The cost of a Homecare Package in place of hospital admission for frail older people →

ihub supported the cost analysis of the introduction of an intervention designed to address the delay in hospital discharge for older people with frailty. The introduction of the Homecare Package meant that frail older people could be discharged to go home, whereas they would have otherwise been admitted to a geriatric ward.
