RCN Wales director welcomes guide on patient care

  • Comment

The director of the Royal College of Nursing Wales has welcomed the publication of a guide to help members improve patient care.

Tina Donnelly said the document, entitled ‘The 1000 Lives Plus Quality Improvement Guide: a method for improving the quality of nursing’, would assist all frontline staff.

“We are delighted that nurses continue to play such an important part in ‘1000 Lives Plus’,” she said.

“The RCN is committed to empowering the nursing family to deliver improvements, because we know the impact this can make. This guide will aid all frontline staff to deliver changes that can make a real difference to patients’ experiences and outcomes.”

The guide offers a consistent position on improving care in the NHS across the whole of Wales.

Based on strong evidence, it is hoped staff will be able to use it to ensure that patients get the best possible care and the best possible result from their treatment.

Minister for health and social services Lesley Griffiths said: “I want to see this becoming the common language for ‘doing’ improvement in NHS Wales.

“There are many examples of nurses implementing best practice which have delivered huge results for patients and their families and I want to see more like this.

She added: “This guide will ensure that all nurses are speaking the same language when it comes to improvement.”
