In this blog, Suzanne Rastrick, Chief Allied Health Professions Officer for NHS England, urges colleagues to start describing service improvements they are undertaking as part of the COVID response and considering what evidence they may need to create a case to continue the good practice.
She asks 'what could we be doing now to measure impact and are we capturing data already that could be developed or utilised to demonstrate and evidence the improvements created through changes in working practices?'
Included in the blog are several resources to help Allied Health Professionals (AHPs) feed in to the process.
The graphic below has been developed to support AHPs to consider the different ways they may be able to evidence the impact of new working practices. It includes a section on safety, encouraging people to reflect and report on any errors or any actions that have either resulted in harm or improved safety.
