sent on behalf of Susan Aitkenhead, Director of Nursing, Professional
Development, NHS England and Liz Fenton, Deputy Chief Nurse, Health Education
delighted to highlight that the first Leading Change, Adding Value (LCAV)
e-learning tool, developed and delivered by Health Education England, NHS
England and LCAV partners, working alongside HEE e-Learning for Healthcare has
been published today.
of the tool is to help explain and de-mystify the approach to identifying and
addressing unwarranted variation in practice and support staff to deliver the
Triple Aim outcomes of better outcomes, better experience and better use of
propose that this will be particularly useful for all colleagues wherever they
work and in whatever role, to help support their understanding of the framework
and how to apply the principles and methodology to their practice.
may already be aware LCAV asks that we apply the same importance to
‘quantifying’ and ‘measuring’ the outcomes of our work, as we do to
demonstrating the quality and compassion that nursing, midwifery and care staff
are already recognised for.
both together should not be mutually exclusive and LCAV explains how nursing,
midwifery and care staff can lead in identifying and addressing what needs to
change or could be changed to improve services, experiences and outcomes for
patients, individuals and populations.
e-learning tool aims to provide an opportunity to build, or strengthen current
knowledge and skills in the understanding of the impact of this ‘unwarranted
variation’ on individuals and populations and then help lead the change
required to address this.
today, the e-learning tool can be accessed here. However, having
received previous feedback from care sector colleagues, that many nursing,
midwifery and care staff do not always have easy access to online resources, we
have also ensured that a pdf version is available and will be distributed over
the coming weeks. The e-learning session should take approximately 20-25
minutes to complete. We would ask that you encourage colleagues to access the
e-learning tool and find out more about LCAV.
would like further information about the e-learning tool, please visit the
e-LfH module or contact us via the LCAV email address at firstname.lastname@example.org where we are also
happy to take any other queries on the LCAV implementation programme.
a link to a co-authored blog is available here.
for your support.
