SPSP Acute Adult Collaborative

Following the recent launch of the next phase of SPSP, Healthcare Improvement Scotland is delighted to invite all NHS boards to join the SPSP Acute Adult Collaborative launching in September 2021.

Following extensive engagement with NHS boards, the collaborative has two areas of focus;

  • reducing inpatient falls, and
  • early recognition and timely intervention for deteriorating patients

This work will be underpinned by the Essentials of Safe Care.

The collaborative aims to support the implementation and spread of two recently co designed (with NHS boards) change packages to achieve the following aims

Deteriorating patient

  • reduction in cardiopulmonary resuscitation rate in acute care by December 2023
  • improved early recognition of physiological deterioration, and
  • improved care experience

Falls

  • reduce all falls by 20% by September 2023
  • reduce falls with harm by 30% by September 2023

Additionally, there will be the option for local aims to be set for falls and falls with harm within the same timeframe.

The collaborative will launch on MS teams on 22nd September 2021 and run to March 2023. NHS boards will apply quality improvement methods to test local changes, track progress and share learning through the collaborative network.
