The NHS Institute for Innovation and Improvement (NHSI) has launched a new toolkit to help community healthcare professionals understand how the first impressions they make and the quality of care they provide is seen through a patient’s eyes. The toolkit is free to NHS organisations. The toolkit was created when a mother commented on her family’s experience of hospital care. She could tell what kind of care her daughter was going to receive within just 15 steps of walking on to a ward. Research involving both patients and staff, shows that this comment is also often true for the care that is delivered in patients’ own homes. The research underlined that first impressions count irrespective of where you or your loved on is receiving care.

‘What about end of life care?’ is a practical toolkit designed to help the public and professionals understand the new health and care structures and develop the relationships required to secure high quality end of life care.
The 15 Steps Challenge from the Institute for Innovation and Improvement is part of the resources available for the Productive Care workstream. It is a toolkit that was co-produced with patients, relatives, volunteers, staff, governors and senior leaders, to help look at hospital care through the eyes of patients and relatives, helping to hear and see what good looks like. The toolkit provides a series of questions and prompts to guide patients, carers and NHS staff through their first impressions of a ward. The Challenge will help trusts to understand and identify the key components of high quality care that are important to patients and carers from their first contact with a ward.
