This conference focuses on developing systems and processes for accreditation for quality. Accreditation can be used as a tool to encouraging ownership of continuous quality improvement, reduce variation and increase staff pride and team working. Through practical case studies of NHS Trusts that have successfully introduced accreditation schemes the conference will provide practical guide to implementing systems, and improving staff engagement in driving improvement.

“Trusts that have implemented successful accreditation programmes report several key benefits from doing so. These are:
• Reduces unwarranted variation by providing an evidence-based, standardised approach to supporting the delivery of care and improving quality. It standardises practice in key processes: for example, patient discharge, patient observations, staffing, risk assessments for patients, audits.
• Increases staff engagement, encourages team working and improves staff morale, leading to reduced turnover, sickness and reliance on temporary staff.
• Helps doctors, nurses, midwives and care staff understand what the expected standards are at Trust, ward and unit level by providing a clear set of standards and a measure of how well quality care is being delivered
• Provides ward-to- board assurance on the quality of care and demonstrates compliance with fundamental standards which enables preparedness for external inspections.
• Creates a platform for continuous improvement in patient safety and patient experience, and encourages staff engagement in local quality improvement projects.
• Improves accountability and encourages shared governance by enabling a focus on the key risks associated with the delivery of care as well as by identifying excellent practice.
• Provides a platform for shared learning so that wards and units can learn from each other and disseminate excellent practice.
• Creates a culture of pride and accomplishment and supports collective leadership, personal and professional development.”

NHS Improvement

“A trust’s participation in accreditation schemes is reflected in the well-led key question at provider level as evidence of a commitment to quality improvement and assurance”


"Your organization will only make meaningful and sustainable quality improvements when people at every level feel a shared desire to make processes and outcomes better every day, in bold and even imperceptible ways.”
