Catheter Care south London collaborative
Catheter Care south London Collaborative
It all started as a two-year catheter quality improvement programme across south London aiming to reduce CAUTIs by 30% and improve catheter practice. We adopted the Institute for Healthcare Improvement ‘Breakthrough Series Collaborative’ methodology to form a south London collaborative, made up of 9 acute hospitals and 8 community services, where all organisations could share and learn from one another.
The programme had four main stages or drivers:
- Co-production with patients and Age UK to design catheter information material and an animated catheter video.
- Implementing a catheter-care bundle with our providers.
- Improving infrastructure and culture.
- The IHI Breakthrough Collaborative methodology including PDSA tests of change and measurements of improvement strategies.
