All Improvement is Local
“I believe I have a personal responsibility to make a positive impact on society.”
We’re all familiar w/ the phrase, “all politics is local”. It’s a reference to the ability of those running for office or holding office being aware of the issues important to those they represent. It’s about getting below the 30,000 foot level and connecting at the personal level.
The same can be said about improving care delivery for the residents and communities you serve. For every quality measure, for each deficient practice, there is a strategy, and program, a training or an initiative designed to guide providers to better results.
But you know best. As leaders in your facilities, you know your residents, your staff and the priorities that need focus to make your facility meet and exceed expectations. The challenge however, is that you don’t always know the answers.
Since this past March, the Commitment to Care initiative has focused on different quality topics every month with tools, training and resources to support the priorities that matter to you. In the coming months, there will be added focus on issues such as: reducing anti-psychotics, improving infection prevention strategies, and caring for residents with dementia.
Improvement is local. You know your residents and your families better than anyone. Be on the lookout for these and other coming clinical improvement tools and initiatives. If there is a priority topic of interest that you haven’t seen yet, let us know how we can help. Your local priorities might be “local” to many other colleagues of yours as well.
