Project lead: Louise Woodward
Duration of project: April 2020 – April 2022
The ShinyMind App provided mental health, wellbeing and resilience support and activities. It had been co-designed with all levels of staff groups within the NHS, so was tailored to positively support staff in some of the most challenging and stressful jobs.
Social Prescribing Action Learning Trailblazer
Project lead: Laurence Quirk
Duration of project: January – April 2022
Our Training Hub won funding from Health Education England in late 2021 to deliver a trailblazer project on action learning for Social Prescribing Link Workers, Health and Wellbeing Coaches, and Care Coordinators.
This short term project explored how to improve supervision and workforce development through a series of small group, peer support sessions for local Integrated Care System staff.
These sessions supported Primary Care Networks by:
Supporting professional development needs of the workforce
Offering reflecting space around managing patient risk factors, individual sharing of case studies and exploring ethical dilemmas
Sessions did not replace GP or line-management supervision or other local arrangements.
Delegated Healthcare Tasks
Project lead: Nicola Payne
Duration of project: October 2020 – August 2022
We are working with Nottingham and Nottinghamshire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) to improve training for Personal Assistants who are employed through personal health budget payments. Following consultation with people who have lived experience, alongside System stakeholders, Komplex Direct are working with personal health budget holders to deliver training and competency assessments to Personal Assistants who perform delegated healthcare tasks.
We were part of a community of practice led by NHS England where we heard best practice examples from around the country. We have since shared our initiative as a best practice example and are continuing to work with stakeholders to improve access to training.
Developing Social Care Nurses
Project lead: Nicola Payne
Duration of project: February – July 2022
We have worked with social care providers, Wren Hall, Mansfield Manor, Landermeads and Millington Springs to identify training topics for nurses working in social care. This will support their practice development.
A ‘7 day Masterclass’ programme will be delivered over 14 weeks to 24 nurses based on the 4 Pillars of Advanced Practice. This will facilitate nurses working in social care to develop on that trajectory. On completion of the programme, nurses can explore routes via Higher Education Institutes to further their continuous professional development (CPD). This project works closely with the Advanced Clinical Practice (ACP) project.
