Calling all nurses and midwives!
I have received this information.
The Top Ten High Impact Actions for Nursing and Midwifery went live this morning as a joint initiative between the DH, the NHS Institute for Innovation and Improvement, the RCN, RCM and the NMC. The aim is to discover what changes to service have been made by nurses and midwives on the frontline that have improved quality for patients, prevented harm or illness and reduced costs – that, if replicated nationally, will have a
huge impact. The Top Ten High Impact Actions website went live today
Monday 21st September 2009 until 12th October 2009 and I would encourage you to send this amongst your networks all nurses and midwives to encourage them to submit details of service improvements they have made through the site.
I have attached an invitation to nurses and midwives, a banner for use on local websites which can be linked to the following website address:
http://www.institute.nhs.uk/hia, a copy of a press release that has gone to all trade press and a poster in both A4 and A3.
I would be grateful if you could cascade these tools to your networks and teams within your area and encourage them to maximise the opportunity for the nurses and midwives within their organisation. I am sure they will also find this a good background against which to get some local good news stories out there – especially in reference to current discussions in the media about the economic climate and the possible impact on public services.
