08 Implementing Change

Introducing change

Medical audit shows what changes are needed:

  • it isn’t a method for changing care;
  • actually making the changes is the most difficult part of audit!

Actions to remedy identified deficiencies

  • Emphasise what has been achieved.
  • What are we proud of?
  • What are we not so proud of?
  • How can we correct any deficiencies?

Changes must be practical!

How are you actually going to make the changes?

  • Simply saying “We’ve got to do better” won’t result in change
  • You need to think through in detail
      • WHAT needs to be done
      • WHO is going to do it
      • WHEN and
      • HOW.

Keep a record

Keep brief written record of:                       

    • The reason for doing the audit;
    • Criteria and standards;
    • Results
    • Plans for change
    • Action taken
    • When/whether to repeat the audit.

Bradford VTS was created by Dr. Ramesh Mehay, a Programme Director for Bradford GP Training Scheme back in 2001. Over the years, it has seen many permutations.  At the time, there were very few resources for GP trainees and their trainers so Bradford decided to create one FOR EVERYONE. 

So, we see Bradford VTS as  the INDEPENDENT vocational training scheme website providing a wealth of free medical resources for GP trainees, their trainers and TPDs everywhere and anywhere.  We also welcome other health professionals – as we know the site is used by both those qualified and in training – such as Associate Physicians, ANPs, Medical & Nursing Students. 

Our fundamental belief is to openly and freely share knowledge to help learn and develop with each other.  Feel free to use the information – as long as it is not for a commercial purpose.   

We have a wealth of downloadable resources and we also welcome copyright-free educational material from all our users to help build our rich resource (send to bradfordvts@gmail.com).

Our sections on (medical) COMMUNICATION SKILLS and (medical) TEACHING & LEARNING are perhaps the best and most comprehensive on the world wide web (see white-on-black menu header section on the homepage).
