Innovation 'Elevator Pitch':
This is an online toolkit developed specifically for primary care multi-disciplinary teams to assess for potential learning or development in relation to mental health needs of their patients.
Overview of Innovation:
This product identifies confidence levels amongst primary care teams with regard to the recognition, intervention and support of people with mental health wellbeing and illnesses. Evaluation of the findings will assist in the development of a potential action plan to address learning needs on both an individual and team level. It can assist in assessing confidence and raising self-awareness of staff skills and knowledge in the overall management of people with mental illness. The tool can also be used for revalidation, supervision and appraisal purposes.
The tool is designed for all the whole team. For example receptionists, health care assistants, practice nurses, physician associates, advanced nurse practitioners, allied health professionals, pharmacists and general practitioners.
If embedded within an individuals or team’s learning and development strategy it has the potential to improve the quality of care offered to people to manage their mental health wellbeing and illness.
The Mental Health Learning Needs Analysis tool is ready to be used for further evaluation and feedback.
Stage of Development:
Evaluation stage - Representative model or prototype system developed and can be effectively evaluated
