Leading Change, Adding Value:
A framework for nursing, midwifery and care staff
Leading Change, Adding Value is a framework for all nursing, midwifery and care staff. It can be used by everyone, wherever you work and whatever your role. It has been developed with a wide range of national organisations, staff representatives, people we care for, carers and the public.
About the framework
Nursing, midwifery and care staff have a crucial role to play in closing the three gaps identified in the Five Year Forward View – the health and wellbeing gap, the care and quality gap, and the funding and efficiency gap, by making sure the activities we do are of high value. The 6Cs remain the value base in all that they do.
The framework highlights the need to focus on unwarranted variation – variations in health and care outcomes, patients’ experience and use of resources that cannot be justified by reasons of geography, demography, or infrastructure.
Nursing, midwifery and care staff form the largest proportion of the health and care workforce, they have a key, leadership role in delivering a positive impact on outcomes, experience and better use of resources – the triple aim outcome measures.
