Key Learning Objectives

  • Recognise how improving the patient experience can improve clinical outcomes, patient satisfaction and reduce staff stress
  • Understand why standards relating to patient participation exist in the accreditation systems of health, aged care, mental health and disability services.
  • Be able to identify and plan ways to improve the patient and staff experience
  • Recognise the risks to achieving a positive experience and discover ways to manage them

About the Course

This course will take you on an interactive journey to transform the patient and staff experience. We will start by looking at the vision for how and why transforming the patient experience has the potential to reap financial, staff, reputational and patient benefits.

We will reflect on the context in which we are tasked to transform patient experience, the expectations of patients, the public, media, government, accreditation bodies and the environmental constraints of money, time and staff. The risks involved and ways to manage them. We will look at examples and practice transforming service design and delivery to enable person centred care.

To finish we will look at how to achieve the most important success factor for improving the patient experience – a positive staff experience. Research has clearly shown, that organisations who fail in this area will only achieve change in patient experience at the cost of the physical and mental health of staff.

You will leave with practical ideas on how to take your staff on the journey to transforming the patient experience.

Who Should Attend

This course will benefit leaders, managers, quality and risk management staff. It is particularly suited to people directly involved in quality improvement initiatives to transform the patient experience or implement accreditation standards relating to person centred care.
