For anyone in #healthcare currently implementing local ward #accreditations, here are our Top 3 Tips to ensure your programme remains effective:
> Set the Culture - ensure a clear aim of developing a supportive and fair culture
> Build Capability - empower your ward / dept. teams to monitor and improve
> Combine knowledge - triangulate data over time with assurance visits
Many Ward Accreditations programmes currently exist across the NHS but not all are effective. Knowing what you are trying to achieve and preserving that at all times will ensure the rigour needed for real assurance.
