Synopsis

No Force First – Dave Riley, Mersey Care NHS Foundation Trust

No Force First is a comprehensive physical intervention reduction programme that promotes culture change within inpatient areas. It challenges in-patient teams to create less fraught, more collaborative in-patient environments and seeks to identify key areas of improvement to reduce tension. The lived experience narratives of people using services have been essential to winning both hearts and minds, while sustained board level support has helped to maintain momentum and progress.

Assembling a standard design for a multi-purpose seclusion unit: Alex Senciuc, Medical Architecture

How can a methodical approach to evaluation facilitate the design and decision-making process and drive improvement of an NHS Trusts’ seclusion facilities? Repeated failures triggered the need to improve seclusion facilities on multiple sites across the estates. The Trust opted to provide a single standard design for a suite hosting seclusion, long-term segregation, section 136, and de-escalation activities. The Component Evaluation Matrix was used to shortlist best-in-class products for the suite. Clinical teams used the matrix as a knowledge base, as a tool for interrogating the operational model, and as an evaluation framework, allowing stakeholders to reach consensus.
