From Leading Change, Adding Value to helping lead implementation of the new Long Term Plan.
Leading Change, Adding Value (LCAV) was published in 2016 as a framework for nursing, midwifery and care staff to help explain how to identify and address unwarranted variation in practice, to improve outcomes, experience and use of resources.
Nursing, midwifery and care staff are well aware of the positive difference that their practice makes. However there is less awareness that the same importance needs to be applied to ‘quantifying’ and ‘measuring’ outcomes as to ensuring that quality remains at the heart of their practice and care.
The great work from LCAV has resulted in a National Atlas of Shared Learning and a complementary National Research Portfolio that provide a foundation to showcase practice and demonstrate how nursing, midwifery and care staff can build on this work and help lead the successful delivery of the LTP.
