Abstract

Recent research (Robertson et al, 2005) has demonstrated that person‐centred planning (PCP) leads to positive changes for people. This research shows how PCP is associated with benefits in the areas of community involvement, contact with friends, contact with family and choice. This paper briefly describes this research and its recommendations. In addition it explores the implications for managers and professionals supporting people with learning disabilities.

Abstract

Purpose – To report on how service changes can be accelerated by working with large groups that represent all parts of a complete healthcare service or care pathway, during specific events, and using well‐defined facilitation techniques. Design/methodology/approach – Case examples are cited from the Clinical Governance Support Team's “protected time” programme and subsequent work, and specific quotes and examples from large group events are used to describe the potential impact of the approach. Findings – Established group facilitation techniques can be adapted for use in the context of a large group representative of a whole clinical system or pathway, to accelerate service improvement. Originality/value – The paper reports on the practical findings from Clinical Governance Support Team group facilitators working on large group events from a number of UK NHS Trusts.
