      Etiquette and traditions, such as holding hands during "Auld Lang Syne" or dealing with social situations when someone is not drinking, can vary and cause confusion. During a conversation about music and traditions, it was discussed that in Scotland, people hold hands while singing "Auld Lang Syne" without crossing arms, while outside Scotland, people cross their arms. There was also a mention of Queen Elizabeth II and Tony Blair's confusion about hand-holding during this song. Additionally, the topic of socializing with friends who don't drink came up, and it was suggested that people should respect others' choices and not pressure them to drink. Lara, a listener, asked for advice on how to socialize with friends who drink while trying to stay sober and worrying about being perceived as boring. The hosts shared their experiences and emphasized the importance of respecting others' choices and not pressuring them to conform.

    • Respecting Choices: Drinking or Not DrinkingRespect people's decisions about drinking and don't pressure them. Create non-alcoholic drinks that look like alcoholic ones to avoid unwanted attention. Set clear boundaries and maintain professionalism in personal and professional situations.

      Everyone should respect each other's choices when it comes to drinking or not drinking, and no one should be pressured into consuming alcohol if they don't want to. This was a topic of discussion during a podcast recording, where the hosts shared their experiences and opinions on the matter. One host expressed his preference for spending time in the pub instead of participating in activities like escape rooms. Another host suggested that people could make non-alcoholic drinks look like alcoholic ones to avoid unwanted attention. The hosts also acknowledged that more and more people are recognizing the importance of not pressuring others to drink and that such behavior might indicate that the person is not a true friend. Additionally, the discussion touched on an anonymous letter from a teacher who was approached by a parent outside of school hours and felt uncomfortable with the situation. The teacher had suggested that they discuss the student's progress when they returned to school, but the parent continued to ask questions and press the issue. The teacher felt embarrassed and the student seemed annoyed, leading the teacher to wonder if their response was appropriate and how to handle similar situations in the future. The hosts advised that setting clear boundaries and maintaining professionalism are crucial in such situations.

    • Respecting Teachers' Personal BoundariesTeachers value their personal time and privacy. Parents should not approach them with academic concerns or ask for extra work. Recognize their dedication to their profession and respect their boundaries.

      Teachers value their personal time and privacy, and it's important for parents to respect that. They work hard and deserve to have a break from work-related matters, even outside of school hours. It's also not fair to approach them about academic concerns or ask them to take extra work home. The discussion also touched upon the different parenting styles and how some parents were more focused on their children's behavior rather than their grades. The speakers shared their own experiences of growing up with parents who had varying levels of involvement in their education. Lastly, there was a brief mention of the challenges of language and accent, and how they can influence communication. Overall, the conversation emphasized the importance of respecting teachers' personal boundaries and recognizing their dedication to their profession.

    • Navigating Communication DilemmasBeing aware of how our words and actions impact others is crucial in communication. Apologizing and explaining or embracing the situation are two approaches, each with pros and cons. Understanding and respecting individual differences is essential.

      Communication can be a complex and nuanced process, especially when it comes to accent and tone. Christina shared her experience of mimicking accents unintentionally, causing confusion and amusement among her English-speaking friends. She struggled with whether to apologize and explain or ignore it, fearing being misunderstood or making a situation awkward. Similarly, Dean Valentine shared an experience of being seen naked through his bathroom window by a neighbor and his response, which involved embracing his nudity rather than covering up. Both stories highlight the importance of being aware of how we come across to others and the potential consequences of our actions. In both cases, the speakers were faced with a dilemma and had to navigate the situation carefully. Christina's solution was to apologize and explain, while Dean chose to embrace his situation. Both approaches have their pros and cons, and it ultimately depends on the individual and the specific situation. It's essential to remember that communication is a two-way street, and being aware of how our words and actions impact others is crucial. It's also important to remember that everyone has unique experiences and perspectives, and we should strive to be understanding and respectful of those differences.

    • Respecting privacy in unexpected situationsBe mindful of others' privacy and suggest solutions when necessary to avoid awkward situations. Unexpected visitors or situations can lead to embarrassment, so it's important to respect each other's boundaries.

      Privacy and consent are important in various situations, whether it's dealing with nosy neighbors or unexpected visitors. In the first instance, receiving a letter from Elton John asking to visit was seen as a flex, but the recipient felt uncomfortable with the lack of privacy and suggested solutions like privacy film or blinds. In the second instance, a couple was in a compromising position when the girlfriend's father came home unexpectedly. They froze, and the father gave his daughter a kiss, leaving the couple in an awkward situation. The advice given was to respect each other's privacy and possibly stop what they were doing to avoid any embarrassment. These situations highlight the importance of respecting others' privacy and being mindful of unexpected visitors or situations.

    Ep 29. How the health sector can improve patient pathways, Rachael Millward, Sue Moore, and Rob Music

    Ep 29. How the health sector can improve patient pathways, Rachael Millward, Sue Moore, and Rob Music

    With the brunt of winter fast upon us, and the flurry of increased demand that has followed, the NHS is drawing upon all its nous and creativity to see how it can generate efficiencies and optimise patient pathways.

    With that in mind, National Health Executive sat down with three leading industry voices to discuss how we can arrest the backlog and keep patients flowing in and out of the door this winter.

     

    Communication

    One of the more notable things that was addressed during our discussion was the necessity of not just communication but effective communication – that doesn’t just apply to patients either, it also includes colleagues and sector partners too.

    Sue Moore, the Director for Outpatient Recovery and Transformation at NHS England suggested that by collaborating with the NHS’s various regional bodies, Primary Care, the Royal Colleges, and sector providers, the healthcare industry has an opportunity to identify what ‘best practice’ is – or, at the very least, what best practice is not.

    This is one of the “key areas” being focused on by biopharmaceutical research and development experts AbbVie, according to its Head of Medical Affairs for Immunology, Rachael Millward.

    She said: “One of the key areas that we are trying to establish is how do we, as an organisation, partner better with the NHS?”

    Because it is only through that communication and collaboration with providers and stakeholders that the health sector can establish what best practice – the best practice that will help serve the seven million people who are currently waiting for treatment.

    One of the best examples that was mentioned was Super September, where providers are given the chance to trial small initiatives and ideas that might help expedite treatment pathways.

    What Sue and her colleagues at NHS England found was that, during the two-week period in which the Super September scheme ran, over 66,000 more patients were seen and “significant” inroads were made into the lists housing the very longest waiters.

    Sue explained: “Some people did some work on Did Not Attends, some people did work on the validation of lists and asking patients if they still wanted or needed that appointment, there was work on looking at how clinics are constructed and the templates [they used] – a whole range of things.”

    But the question is, how do we take initiatives like Super September and scale them up? How do we ensure the best and most effective methods are adopted nationally? Because as is said a lot in this industry, and indeed many times during our discussion, there isn’t one thing that is going to solve everything; there is no panacea for patient backlog and treatment pathways – one size does not fit all.

    The answer: That word again – communication.

    One of the first things Sue noted on the podcast was what the Outpatient and Recovery Programme is focusing on. Two of those things were ensuring that patients see the value of even going to an appointment in the first place and the other centred around exploring and developing the idea of creating clinical environments where patients, who are medically suitable, can initiate their own follow-up appointments. Or in other words a patient-initiated follow-up (PIFU).

    The key to achieving success in both those areas goes hand-in-hand – by empowering patients and seeing them more “as a partner”, as Rob Music the CEO of The Migraine Trust alluded to, the health sector can help patients see the value of appointments and give them more ownership over their care.

    By doing this, and providing patients with the requisite education around the relevant diseases, clinicians can help the public optimise their own treatment pathways and reduce delays and waiting times.

     

    Technology

    Guidance around how best to implement PIFUs was released by NHS England back in May 2022; the document detailed everything from how many specialities to start up with and what specialities are even suitable, all the way to the benefits and potential pitfalls of this method of care.

    This is also something AbbVie have been able to help other providers with. Rachael explained that when they collaborated with some rheumatology services and explored the potential of PIFUs, a lot of services said they still needed help developing and then establishing their PIFUs. 

    She said: “It became very clear to us that we needed to help services connect together, so that they could understand what the pitfalls are, what the hurdles are, and what are the things you need to consider in order to set up a PIFU service that would be successful, whilst also mitigating some of the challenges.”

    It was then flagged how a lot of “myth busting” needs to be done around PIFUs and how some staff’s notion that they would be overwhelmed by an avalanche of triggered appointments isn’t actually true – or doesn’t necessarily need to be true.

    As long as you have the right technological infrastructure in place, implementing successful, effective, and efficient PIFUs is “not that difficult to do,” according to Sue.

    Sue explained: “There needs to be a really effective tracking mechanism to enable patients to trigger an appointment, if they meet the criteria. But similarly for the clinical team to know that a patient has triggered an appointment.”

    Sue added: “For me, this is about confident patients, clinical leadership, and being really respectful that not one model fits all.”

    In support of that mantra, Sue’s Outpatient Recovery and Transformation Programme worked in conjunction with the Getting It Right First Time team to produce outpatient guidance for the top 10 by-volume specialties that identifies, by subspecialty, which people would be suitable for PIFUs and which people would not.

    Sue commented: “It collates all the best practice guidance of really where you start, and what we've said on an individual basis is we're very happy to support and make the connections for people to do that.”

     

    Final thoughts

    Rachael Millward

    ·         There isn’t one thing that is going to solve everything – it will be a range of different factors and measures that combine to achieve the desired outcome.

    ·         But we also need to be clear on what those desired outcomes are and understanding that patients present in very complex ways.

    ·         PIFU and education around things like remote monitoring will be a key part of that solution.

     

    Sue Moore

    ·         Providers need look at the entire pathway when exploring innovations and they need to employ an enthusiastic approach and drive themselves forward to implement the necessary change.

    ·         Communicate, collaborate, and congratulate.

    ·         Use technology for the right reasons and when it is necessary, rather than for the sake of it.

     

    Rob Music

    ·         More people need to be trained as specialist GPs and nurses, drawing upon some of the best practice in the community.

    ·         Better leadership from ICSs in terms of their service design and how patients interact and ...
