A multi professional team from NHS Tayside attended the Scottish Government’s National 6 Essential Actions ‘Big Brag’ event in Edinburgh to showcase improvements in how patients access health and social care services in a timely way.
The 6 Essential Actions have been set out as part of a programme to improve unscheduled care across Scotland. The ‘Big Brag’ event, which was attended by over 300 health and social care delegates, gave staff the opportunity to share the impact of the programme so far.
A team from Tayside manned three tables at the event, presenting their local improvement work, exchanging ideas and knowledge with other delegates and championing their local passion for improvement.
The three Tayside tables covered Driving Daily Dynamic Discharge (DDD) in PRI Medicine, Ward 19 in Ninewells Hospital and the Integrated Discharge Hub in Dundee.
Senior charge nurse Billy Gibson, Medicine for the Elderly consultant Dr Dirk Habicht, improvement advisor Stuart McAllan and service improvement lead Paul Arbuckle also presented a masterclass on NHS Tayside’s approaches to designing and implementing systematic improvement processes.
