Engaging frontline staff requires a much better understanding of how they seek, access and use information. Innovative approaches to improving clinical practice must be designed to respect and enhance the interest of the aged care and health care workforce.
This seminar will present information about the different sources and modes of communicating messages that promote patient and resident safety with a look at how the emerging multi-media formats are being used.
Changing practice to improve delivery of clinical care of older patients and enhance the quality of life of residents requires both ‘top-down’ and ‘bottom-up’ approaches. This applies to every organisation, be it acute care hospitals or residential aged care services. Health and aged care organisations rely on a top-down model to direct changes in practice, relying on the authority and this approach is two-pronged.
We use fear by informing staff of the potential sanctions that arise from the courts and regulatory authorities, such as accreditation or professional registration. Is this fair? We appeal to the rational, intellectual and scientific side of staff by promoting change with the use of data, research evidence and guidelines from professional colleges and universities. Is this effective?
We should be conveying messages to staff in a way that matches how they learn and that fits into their day-to-day work and life. We look back at 10-years of experience using printed educational material of deaths reported to the Coroners Court and examine the contemporary questions of ‘Is it worthwhile spending money to make a YouTube video? Does a ‘like’ on Facebook actually lead to changing how a doctor, nurse or pharmacist think and behave?’ This seminar explores the importance of tailoring information, exploring:
- The latest in an evolving communications environment
- Using different mediums and communication tools to effectively mitigate clinical risk
- Driving a safety culture for staff, patients and residents.
