Implementing and sustaining change in the contemporary NHS: lessons from the Productive Ward – Policy +, King’s College London – March 2011

“Health care is rich in evidence-based innovations, yet even when such innovations are implemented successfully in one organisation, their systematic spread and sustainability is unpredictable (Berwick 2003.) Given the quality and cost challenge currently facing the NHS, it is critical that improvement programmes are implemented quickly, on a large-scale and assimilated and sustained in routine practice. The NNRU reviewed the theory on the spread of innovations and applied this evidence to their ongoing research into the implementation and assimilation of the Productive Ward. Here we present the findings and consider the implications for policy and practice.”

The Productive Ward: Releasing time to care – Learning and Impact Review – Final report – NHS Institute for Innovation and Improvement and King’s College London – 2010

“The NHS Institute for Innovation and Improvement’s (NHS Institute) The Productive Ward: Releasing time to care™ programme aims to empower ward teams to identify areas for improvement by giving staff the information, skills and time they need to regain control of their ward and the care they provide.

This review (undertaken February-June 2009) set out to establish the overall learning from and impact of The Productive Ward programme since its conception in 2005, and to suggest how this can be spread and sustained. The review applies an evidence-based Diffusion of Innovation framework1 to The Productive Ward programme to examine multi-level perspectives (national, regional, local) of learning and impact. The findings are  informed by in-depth interviews with national and regional stakeholders, a national web-survey of frontline staff, and case studies of implementation within five NHS acute Trusts.”

“I am once again delighted that Speechly Bircham has teamed up with the internationally renowned academic team at King’s College London, through the King’s HRM Learning Board, to undertake this survey. Now in its second year, the survey offers a truly unique insight into the issues senior HR professionals face in these difficult economic times, what the HR function is doing to address those issues and how the function itself is being affected by the changes going on around it.

Employee engagement remains the number one challenge for HR professionals, with recognition given to the damage done to engagement by the recession and the consequent need to focus on it as a priority as the economy recovers.”

From bench to bedside. What role for nurses in helping the NHS make better and quicker use of technological innovations?

From bench to bedside. What role for nurses in helping the NHS make better and quicker use of technological innovations? Policy + from King’s College London issue 19,  July 2009

“The adoption of innovative healthcare technologies with a proven ability to deliver increased patient benefits and significant efficiencies is perceived as slower and more variable in the NHS than other healthcare systems. Nurses are the largest workforce in the NHS and end users of much technology at the bedside. Drawing on a recently completed systematic review (1), this Policy Plus summarises what we know – and do not know – about the nurses’ role in adopting and assimilating such innovations into routine  clinical care and considers the challenges for nurse leaders.”
