Leading Change, Adding Value – a process evaluation

This evaluation reports on the first year of the Leading Change, Adding Value framework for nursing, midwifery and care staff, (LCAV) and its implementation, so far. With a focus on leading everyday change, perceptions were gathered on how LCAV has been, and may be, used by frontline staff.

Recommendations have been made on how to measure and explore LCAV becoming “business as usual” to meet the triple aim outcomes of improving outcomes, experience and better use of resources and support closing the three gaps, health and wellbeing, care and quality and funding and efficiency as outlined in the Five Year Forward View (FYFV), over the next two years.

Following on from the year one evaluation, this interim report describes and evaluates the work undertaken in Year Two (May 2017- May 2018), building upon the foundations set within Year One (May 2016- May 2017) to continue to disseminate LCAV in a matrix fashion at national, regional and local levels and also to support its co-implementation as it moves towards an aim of being embedded as business as usual.
