High Impact Actions: The Essential Collection

High Impact Actions: The Essential CollectionThe High Impact Actions for Nursing and Midwifery were developed following a ‘call for action’ which asked frontline staff to submit examples of high quality and cost effective care that, if adopted widely across the NHS, would make a transformational difference.

Nurses and midwives responded by submitting more than 600 examples in less than three weeks.

The Essential Collection aims to highlight just some of the stories behind those submissions by providing details not only of what was done, but also ‘how they did it’. These examples are intended to provide illustrations of good practice which you may not already have seen. Most importantly they are examples of how real people have made a real difference.

The Essential Collection is not designed to be tell you ‘how to’ make the changes; but it does signpost you to some of the many excellent resources already available that relate to the areas identified within the High Impact Actions.

High Impact Actions: The Essential Collection conference - 9 December 2010

Following on from the hugely successful launch of the NHS Institute's High Impact actions for Nursing and Midwifery: The Essential Collection, we'd like to draw your attention to the Nursing Times 'High Impact Actions: the Essential Collection' conference, developed in association with the NHS Institute.

Katherine Fenton, who led the initiative on behalf of the SHA Chief Nurses, will be chairing the event and Liz Ward from the NHS Institute will be making the keynote address. Representatives from the sites whose case studies were highlighted in the collection will also be speaking at the event.
