High Impact Actions: The Essential Collection

High Impact Actions: The Essential CollectionThe High Impact Actions for Nursing and Midwifery were developed following a ‘call for action’ which asked frontline staff to submit examples of high quality and cost effective care that, if adopted widely across the NHS, would make a transformational difference.

Nurses and midwives responded by submitting more than 600 examples in less than three weeks.

The Essential Collection aims to highlight just some of the stories behind those submissions by providing details not only of what was done, but also ‘how they did it’. These examples are intended to provide illustrations of good practice which you may not already have seen. Most importantly they are examples of how real people have made a real difference.

The Essential Collection is not designed to be tell you ‘how to’ make the changes; but it does signpost you to some of the many excellent resources already available that relate to the areas identified within the High Impact Actions.

The video and written case studies that make up The Essential Collection can be accessed using the menu on the right of the page.
