Series: There will be further WebExs to address more detailed questions on the CQUIN, starting in April.

On April 1, the national Transitions out of Children and Young People’s Mental Health Services (CYPMHS) CQUIN will come into effect. Details of the indicator and further guidance on the national CQUIN scheme for 2017-19 is on the NHS England website.

In order to ensure system partners are confident in the contents and expected deliverables of the CQUIN, we are holding a series of WebExs to address key questions.

This is the first WebEx, and will offer an introduction to the CQUIN and its key requirements. Open discussion and questions will be encouraged to ensure all those are confident in their understanding of the document in relation to their local areas and services.

It is intended that these WebEx sessions will become an ongoing series starting in April 2017 to discuss key questions associated with the CQUIN.

The Asthma Life Improver Score – improving outcomes for families living with asthma

Date: 16 March 2017, 12.00 – 1.00pm

Presented by Georgina Craig, Director of the ELC Programme; this webinar is aimed at clinicians, policy/ decision makers, Commissioners, Service transformation and redesign leads, Primary Care development leads, NHS Primary Care Area Team leads, and clinical leads for Long Term Conditions and children services.

Commissioned by NHS England as part of the pathfinder programme, Georgina will share her findings from a pilot of the application of a novel ‘family centered outcome’ measurement tool called The Asthma Life improver Score. Tested in Newcastle and Gateshead CCG in 2015/16 and co designed with children and parents living with asthma, the insight generated from the tool (both quantitative and qualitative) shines a light on the lives of both children and parents who live with asthma. Highlights include: the gender differences amongst both children and parents; the impact on school life of living with asthma for both children and parents; the impact of a shared care plan across schools and clinicians, and the impact that specialist care has on children’s’ and parents’ lives.

The webinar will also describe the co-design process used to develop the tool, what will be available to local systems and offer insight into how it might be replicated in other areas.
