Staff from the Oxford Health NHS FT Productive Care Team hosted two sessions at the recent NHS South of England Safe and Productive Care Celebratory Conference, held on the 3rd October 2012 at the Madjeski Stadium, Reading.

The event was designed as an opportunity for healthcare organisations from across the South of England to come together, share and celebrate success in improving patient experience and care.

Helen Bisp, Tessa Slater, Jenni Guest and Anne Harris from the Productive Care Team presented on  “Making the Links Real: supporting teams to use Productive Care outputs as assurance against related CQC (Care Quality Commission) outcome requirements.”

A total of 58 delegates attended the presentations which covered work prompted by the need to help clinical front line teams identify sources of, assurance against the CQC outcomes. A description was given of the mapping process undertaken between the Productive Care module outputs and the requirements of the related CQC Essential Standards.

A quick reference guide developed for use at ward level was shared, together with examples of the links between selected CQC outcomes and illustrations of good practice Productive Care work.

The sessions generated a lot of interest and delegates found the presentation “made it easy for staff to see the actual links” and they “liked the innovative approach to the use of a KHWAD board”.
