Query Build Basics
Once you've imported the query you will need to open it up and change the date parameter to the previous month (this will need to occur each time you run it) e.g. for your first data set change the parameters to bweteen 01/08/18 and 29/08/18 this should capture all the FBC results between this period. If you're finding there aren't 10 results then use another measure e.g. LFT (a new query will need to be created for this).
If this still isn't work try the query usin the term "full blood count" instead of "complete blood count".
Put the date that the data was collected i.e. your first set of data is submitted by September 10th but the data itself relates to August so put an August date in the first column of the spreadsheet and refer to this data as your August data. It's important that the date is entered in a DD/MM/YY format.
When entering the data please don't add or delete rows. Only enter data for a maximum of 10 patients each month. If you have less than 10 patients for a given month leave those spaces blank and move on.
Once involved, PHOs will support their practices by:
- Participate in planning and implementing the programme.
- Support and provide facilitation at learning sessions.
- Encouraging general practices to hold monthly facilitated practice-based meetings to reflect on their patient safety data and identify areas of change to be tested within the practice environment.
- Supporting general practices by establishing an appropriate infrastructure to successfully implement and sustain the improvements made.
- Taking part in an ongoing evaluation of the programme.
- Coaching and support in quality improvement.
- Develop, fund and run learning sessions.
- Lead the development and testing of new change packages.
- Evaluate outcomes of the Safety in Practice initiative to determine future direction and participation.
Learning sessions are vital to Safety in Practice. Quarterly, practices come to share challenges and successes, learning improvement skills and understand the programme in more depth. Learning sessions last approximately three hours, are held in the evening at a convenient location and include a light dinner.
As learning sessions are vital to the programme it is important that three representatives from a practice (the Patient Safety Champion team) attend learning sessions. Attendance is also associated with payment as outlined in your agreement.
