We produced a range of resources below to support teams that participated in the collaborative to embed a Value Management approach.
We hope that the learning and resources generated during the collaborative will continue to support improvements in care and we will continue to look for opportunities to incorporate our learning into other programmes of work.
Value Management Resource Pack
The Value Management Resource Pack includes videos, guidance and tools to support teams to adopt a Value Management approach.
Interim learning and impact report
The interim learning and impact report presents the progress and achievements of phase one of the Value Management Collaborative. The impact of COVID-19 on the delivery of the work was significant and is represented within the report.
For a brief outline of the report, read the executive summary.
For further information, read the interim learning and impact report.
We have published the following case studies to provide more information and learning about how these particular teams progressed with implementing a Value Management approach.
- Day Medicine in NHS Forth Valley provides day-time treatments to patients under the care of a variety of specialties. Their positive experiences with Value Management included using the approach to switch patients to community-based administration of some drugs reducing the need for patients to attend hospital, and improving the information given to GPs on discharge.
- Easter Ross Community Mental Health Team in NHS Highland provides adult, substance misuse and older adult mental health services. This team made Value Management part of the way they work despite the considerable communication barriers of remote working in a rural area lacking reliable internet access. One example of how they have used the approach is to engage with local GPs on how to optimise the referral process to ensure patients get the right care in the right place more quickly and efficiently.
- Philipshill Spinal Unit in NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde (coming soon) provides rehabilitation following spinal injuries, with patients staying for a considerable length of time (approximately 4-5 months on average). This team decided to focus on Joy at Work during COVID-19 and there is widespread agreement that the team culture has developed markedly to one of valuing and listening to all, and acting to improve staff and patient experience. Numerous quality improvement projects have either been completed or are underway.
During the collaborative, the national team produced a bi-monthly flash report which provided an update on activity, resources and events.
