What is MODEL WARD Programme?
The purpose of the Model ward programme is to identify and stratify standards of care. These standards have been developed along with experts within the organisation and fall under four pillars: Patient Experience, Patient Safety, Staff Experience and Efficiency. All inpatient wards in our hospitals will be assessed against this set criteria. The feedback following this will act as a vehicle for continuous improvement.
Accreditation is well evidenced in literature. To hear about lived experience of being involved in ward accreditation, watch the following video
This is a video from Salford about what accreditation is & what it means to staff and the organisation at large.
Why am i being informed about this?
The Model Ward assessment is being prototyped on two wards at King George Hospital. You have been identified as a clinician working on these wards and we want to make you aware of the project.
What does this mean for me?
We will start on Erica ward, followed by Ash ward. We intend to start with ward ACCREDITATION during June (likely to be week beginning 26th June)
What can you do to prepare?
- Identify ward leaders ( Consultant, Charge Nurse and an AHP)
- Start thinking about what has gone well in the last year & what you can learn from
- Develop the story of your ward ...
