Title: ACHSE 48th Residential Conference March 2002


1
ACHSE 48th Residential ConferenceMarch 2002
  • Leadership and the Quality Challenge - the
    National Perspective
  • Heather Wellington
  • Member, Australian Council for Safety Quality
    in Health Care

2
Current Context of Health Care
  • expanding health wants
  • limited resources
  • cost containment
  • greater clinical accountability
  • expanding technology and demographic changes
  • workforce pressures

3
Health System Activity
  • 19 million people
  • 209.566 million Medicare services (1999/2000)
  • 5,563,074 hospital separations (in 1997-98)
  • day surgery increase from 7 (1980) to 55
  • high doctor / population ratio
  • very high bed usage

4
Economic Improvement
  • we are doing more with less
  • expenditure all health services
  • 7.5 (1985/86) - 8.4 (1997/98) of G.D.P.
  • number of services increased by 30
  • productivity savings (anaesthesia and surgery) 4
    billion/year over 20 years
  • (Access Economics)

5
Adverse Event
  • an incident in which harm resulted to a person
    receiving health care
  • may include
  • complications of diagnosis or treatment
  • misadventure
  • mistakes - slips and lapses
  • errors - latent, active, omission,
  • commission, systems, individual

6
Adverse Events
  • 10 of admissions associated with adverse events
  • 50 of adverse events are severe
  • 50 are preventable
  • most common adverse events
  • wound infection
  • adverse drug events
  • falls and pressure sores

7
Unsafe Care is Costly
  • inappropriate use of drugs results in 80,000
    admissions / year and costs 350 million
  • adverse drug events 10-20 of all adverse
    events
  • ten years wrong side / wrong site surgery one
    days adverse drug events
  • total cost of unsafe care 1 2 billion /year

8
The Safety Message
  • Safety is the most important dimension of quality
    for patients and their families
  • Consumers arent interested in your journey to
    quality. They want safe hospitals, they dont
    want to meet you at the beginning of your
    journey.
  • Consumer Advocate

9
The Safety Message
  • the health system delivers safe care for the
    majority of patients
  • the challenge is to move from 90 reliability to
    100
  • everyone can focus on safety

10
Complexity a Major Hazard
  • 25 component system that functions properly 99
    of the time
  • probability of whole system functioning perfectly
    is 78
  • with 50 elements, 61

11
Many Competing Priorities
  • You ponce in here expecting to be waited on hand
    and foot, well, Im trying to run a hotel here.
    Have you any idea of how much there is to do? Do
    you ever think of that? Of course not, youre
    all too busy sticking your noses into every
    corner, poking around for things to complain
    about, arent you?
  • Basil Fawlty (aka John Cleese)

12
Accident Enquiries Suggest
  • bad events more likely the result of error prone
    situations rather than error prone people
  • the best people can make the worst errors

13
Organisational Accidents
  • Error prone people do exist but seldom remain at
    the hazardous, sharp end for very long. Quite
    often, they get promoted to management!
  • James Reason

14
Systems Focus Essential
  • currently focus on the individual rather than the
    system
  • medical culture personalises error
  • the public, the media and the courts perpetuate
    the focus on the individual

15
Systems Focus Essential
  • individual integrity and competence are
    important, but an emphasis on systems improvement
    is is critical

16
Where We Need to do Better
  • identify and manage risks - knowledge based
    improvement
  • design for safety - reduce complexity
  • encourage and reward improvement and innovation
  • teams not individuals
  • greater openness in
  • assessing performance and outcomes
  • dealing with mishaps and system failures

17
Councils Role
  • Councils Role is to lead and co-ordinate
    national efforts to promote systemic improvements
    in the safety and quality of health care in
    Australia, with a particular focus on minimising
    the likelihood and effects of error.

18
Making Change Happen
  • setting a national agenda for change
  • the National Action Plan
  • building ownership through collaboration
  • links and working parties
  • developing and strengthening national standards
  • support for implementation
  • tools for frontline clinicians and managers
  • promoting the patients role in safety

Safety Innovations in Practice Programme
  • to encourage innovation and excellence in
    practice

  • new projects
  • not clinical research

21

Vs
26

  • credentialling includes performance review
  • registration specialist / vocational, requires
    C.P.D. and revalidation
  • qualified privilege reporting
  • National Implantable Device Register

  • curriculum development and educational strategies
    on systems safety, human factors and
    communication
  • enhanced national morbidity and mortality data
    sets includes coronial reports
  • national audits in priority areas to provide
    benchmarks

30
Opportunities from the Safety Agenda
  • better structures
  • more support
  • a chance to fix problems we have already
    recognised
  • better use of physical and financial resources
  • clinicians involved in
  • setting the health agenda
  • creating the future system

31
What Will Success Look Like?
  • patient centred safety and quality values are
    paramount
  • leaders are identified and nurtured
  • systems are being continuously redesigned for
    improvement
  • tools to make the necessary changes are available
  • measurable improvement in safety and
  • quality
