Using our extensive professional and technical knowledge, our connections and our networks, we produce regular thematic briefings for clients. These briefings describe the challenges for organisations, key questions board and governors etc should ask and provide insight into the controls that should be applied.

This briefing note follows publications by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) and National Quality Board (NQB) (March 2017) on learning from deaths and MIAA’s
previous Briefing Note on Learning from Deaths. More recently the National Quality Board (July 2018) published guidance on how trusts should support, communicate and engage with families following the death of someone in their care.

relation to bereavement services and care. It poses challenging questions for boards to consider.

This briefing note follows recent publications by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) and National Quality Board (NQB) on learning from deaths. It will enable boards to scrutinise policy and practice in regard to governance and assurance relating to deaths. It also poses challenging questions for boards to ensure that learning is maximised from reviews and investigations into problems in care following deaths.
021 - Vanguards
Published: Wednesday, August 09, 2017
Issued: Thursday, August 10, 2017
Over the past 18-24 months fifty areas around England, covering more than five million people, have been working to redesign care through developing and delivering the new vanguards programme.
Early evidence shows important indicators of progress and positive impact. Each vanguard takes a lead on the development of new care models. These models are acting as the blueprint for the NHS moving forward. The idea is that the vanguards provide leadership and inspiration to the rest of the health and care system.
020 - Buurtzorg
Published: Thursday, July 06, 2017
Issued: Friday, July 07, 2017
The Buurtzorg Nederland neighbourhood home care provider were unable to properly care for patients with co-morbidities. This had led to a decline in patient health and satisfaction as patients were seen by a number of professionals, some with insufficient skills to deal with the complex health problems faced by patients and no one professional had responsibility for the whole care package.
With a new CEO, Buurtzorg, a non-profit provider, took a radically different approach. This model aims to bring a holistic, neighbourhood-based approach to the provision of services; maximise patients’ independence through training in self-care and create networks of neighbourhood resources through relying on the role of qualified nurses to both co-ordinate and deliver care.
019 - Health and Housing
Published: Saturday, April 22, 2017
Issued: Sunday, April 23, 2017
Both the condition of people’s homes and their suitability are wider determinants of health.The home environment and housing organisations are core to delivery of the 5 Year Forward View and Public Health England’s Strategic Plan. Our briefing note will explain why housing and housing organisations are important to health transformation.
