Compassion, Leadership that role models behaviours skills and attributes. to deliver compassionate excellence, It isn t just about the care we give but the way we give it It s about how we listen what. we say what we do and more importantly how we do this. To show compassion we need to understand the impact of what we say and do.

Communication, We need to build networks relationships to engage and mobilise for. improvement to do this we must communicate, Engagement relies on communication Real communication not just talking but observing. and hearing Sharing ideas and evaluating them with a wide range of people including. Each other,Our leaders,Our patients,Carers and relatives.

Challenge and influence sceptics, Challenge and influence those in more senior positions to you. Be open to being challenged ourselves,Overcome barriers to make things happen. Be unafraid of leading by example adopting innovations and change. Be unafraid to make suggestions,Don t give up,Competency. In a modern NHS competency is not just required in the fundamentals of care but also. in quality improvement and emerging technologies, We all recognise that clinical competency means being knowledgeable and safe in all aspects of. physical care delivery, We all know that we should document the assessments we make and the care we give clearly. accurately and contemporaneously We all understand the importance of this to the safe delivery of. care by other care professionals involved in a person s care. We also need to be competent in a constantly evolving range of tools that impact directly on care. and or how we identify and communicate the care that is needed or has been given. We need to develop competency in measuring the effectiveness of what we do developing and using. evidence based practice and improvement methods in order to delivery the best possible care at the. right time and in the right place, We need to be able to deliver and measure improvements in a structured planned and proven way. which means we need to have competency in involving our patients and the public. For competency to be maintained and flourish we need confidence Confidence in what we are. doing and in those around us We need those we are leading to have confidence in us and we need. those who delegate to us to support and develop our confidence as we undertake new roles. Most importantly we need our patients and the public to have confidence in us in our confidence. and competence to involve them and to deliver safe high quality care. In Summary,6 little words can drive improvement, Safe high quality Care must remain the system driver. Compassion comes from understanding the impact of what we say and do. We must be Committed transparent and rigorous in measuring the. effectiveness of what we do, To mobilise and engage people you need to Communicate.
