  2. Policy Drivers in Wales The Social Services and Well-being (Wales) Act • Duty to promote wellbeing and take a preventative approach • People have control over what support they need, making decisions about their care and support • Carers have an equal right to assessment for support. • Easy access to information and advice • Stronger powers to safeguard people • Local authorities and health boards work together in new statutory partnerships to drive integration, innovation and service change

  3. Policy Drivers in Scotland Public Bodies (Joint Working) (Scotland) Act 2014 • Live from 1st April 2016 • Are integrated from the point of view of service-users • Take account of the particular needs of different service-users within the local population and their participation in the community. • Respects the rights and dignity of service-users • Protects and improves the safety of service-users • Are planned and led locally in a way which is engaged with the community and makes the best use of the available facilities, people and other resources • Best anticipates needs and prevents them arising • 9 National Health and Wellbeing Outcomes to drive quality improvement across health and social care.

  4. Policy Drivers in Northern Ireland Making Life Better • secure an appropriate balance between hospital and community services • expand intermediate care and improve the quality of assessment of long-term health and social care needs • focus on rehabilitation and independent living • develop a range of housing and care options for different levels of support, Developing Better Services a modernisation programme – person centred, safe, effective and efficient within the limit of resources. • develop a region-wide single assessment process, • expand the range of respite and support services for carers • increase the take up of Direct Payments • engage actively with users and the voluntary and community sector

  5. ‘There is a crisis in our hospitals’ • Julia Scott, Chief Executive Officer, College of Occupational Therapists • Reducing the pressure on hospitals can be achieved through: • Reducing admissions to hospital • Reducing time in hospital • Successful transition and discharge • Those that receive help from an occupational therapist prior to, or during their stay in hospital are likely to have better outcomes and are unlikely to require rapid, costly and upsetting readmission.

  6. Occupational therapy • Occupational therapy provides practical support to enable people to facilitate recovery and overcome any barriers that prevent them from doing the activities (occupations) that matter to them. • This helps to increase people's independence and satisfaction in all aspects of life. "Occupation" refers to practical and purposeful activities that allow people to live independently and have a sense of identity. This could be essential day-to-day tasks such as self-care, work or leisure.

  7. Why occupational therapists? • Occupational therapists are unique as they are trained to work in both health and social care and also work across mental and physical health • Investing in occupational therapy has the potential to improve care quality without increasing overall hospital spending

  8. Reducing the pressure on hospitals: A report on the value of occupational therapy • The College has published four reports one for each UK nation • The evidence for the reports was gathered from data examples from services around the UK • The reports demonstrate innovative working – with occupational therapists working in A&E departments, with ambulance services and with GP practices – all working to keep people out of hospital, reduce length of stay and ensure timely and safe discharge

  9. Report key recommendations The reports call for six key recommendations to put occupational therapy on the frontline in hospitals and emergency services:

  10. England

  11. Northern Ireland

  12. Scotland

  13. Wales KEY RECOMMENDATIONS

  14. Demonstrating the value of occupational therapy The reports showed the following… 78% of people who received an innovative joint assessment between a paramedic and an occupational therapist were able to remain at home

  15. Demonstrating the value of occupational therapy The reports showed the following… 70% Discharged home avoiding hospital admission It has been demonstrated that occupational therapy is most effective within acute and emergency care when the therapists are an integral part of the team. On average the services see 100 people a month, with 70% discharged without needing hospital admission

  16. Demonstrating the value of occupational therapy The reports showed the following… Where occupational therapy services were provided via a both a clinical decision unit and medical assessment unit 67%of patients were discharged rather than requiring ongoing admission. Based on an average inpatient stay of £270 a night, a saving of £542,619 was made.

  17. Demonstrating the value of occupational therapy The reports showed the following… Occupational therapists on acute medical wards can cut stays from 9.5days to just1day Source: Urgent care report (COT 2015) These are just some examples go tohttp://cotimprovinglives.com/for more

  18. Add some local practice examples here or choose some from the report in areas where you wish to develop services. Choosing ones showing savings has a great impact You can use the impact data guidance on the microsite to help you http://cotimprovinglives.com/tell-your-story/

  19. What health leaders are saying A recent parliamentary report on the discharge of patients….identified us as having the lowest number of ‘delayed discharges’ in the UK. With doubt this is because our integrated service model which places occupational therapy teams as core members of our planning for home and facilitated discharge teams. David Evans, Chief Executive Northumbria NHS Foundation Trust ‘Occupational therapists are usually very creative and driven to deliver, which means they often find themselves in role where they are leading on new ways of working and information organisational changes which are required to underpin our transformational work’ Joe Rafferty, Chief Executive of Mersey Care NHS Foundation Trust

  20. What health leaders are saying With A&E attendances increasing, the pressures on emergency departments are greater than ever before. Action must be taken to address demand and relieve pressure on A&Es. This report demonstrates the important part occupational therapists have to play in reducing pressures on primary care services alongside improving the overall quality of care that patients receive. I have been fortunate to work in a unit with front door occupational therapy seven days per week and so I am acutely aware of the benefits to the system that that brings.” Dr. Sean McGovern, Vice President of the Royal College of Emergency Medicine Northern Ireland ‘A fantastic resource that has been underused in primary care…having an occupational therapist attached to the practice has many benefits….the occupational therapist is able to respond appropriately within 24 hours….to help people remain at home safely and comfortably. We are now recruiting two more occupational therapists.’ GPs from S Pembrokeshire cluster

  21. In summary • Reducing the pressure on hospitals can be achieved through: • Reducing admissions to hospital • Reducing time in hospital • Successful transition and discharge • Those that receive help from an occupational therapist prior to, or during their stay in hospital are likely to have better outcomes and are unlikely to require rapid, costly and upsetting readmission. • This valuable workforce, used resourcefully and efficiently can improve care for patients and save services money.

  22. ADD A LOCAL SUMMARY – WHAT ARE YOU ASKING FOR ETC e.g. ask the audience to consider how they can adopt the recommendations in services How can they help with taking the report forward
