The first tranche of the project was successfully delivered in 2017 with tranche two underway for 2018.
This project aims to align practices to the 10 building blocks of high performing practice as an internationally accepted template for the future. EMPHN is working to build a network of practices who have a vision for the future, are ready for change and have the strategies to implement and sustain changes.
The road map includes two main elements:
- baseline analysis of practice systems and the mechanisms to support and consolidate change
- practice support to identify and develop leadership
Practice 2030 utilises an assessment tool developed by the University of Queensland – Mater Research Institute. The tool, Primary Care Practice Improvement Tool (PC-PIT), analyses the perception of practice staff against 13 elements relating to systems and processes, and produces a personalised report identifying areas for improvement. To support and embed change, EMPHN worked closely with 15 practices to analyse, review and strategise quality improvement activities through Plan-Do-Study-Act (PDSA) cycles supported by monthly practice visits by an EMPHN facilitator.
A series of workshops and networking opportunities are held during the project on the below topics:
- leadership/change management
- creating great teams
- peer group work
Applications for tranche two of this project closed in June 2018. Register your general practice with eProcure for notifications of future opportunities posted by EMPHN.
