Using the hashtag #amilliondecisions, librarians are disseminating examples of the impact their work has on the things that matter to senior leaders in the NHS.
Here at BSUH our clinical librarians Igor Brbre and Tom Roper support a series of projects that contribute to high-level organisation objectives.
Accurate, up-to-date evidence of what works elsewhere is critical to the success of improvement projects, and Igor supports the Innovation Forum, a regular meeting at which any member of BSUH staff can bring forward ideas for improvement; ideas are then honed in discussion and information and support offered to take them forward.
Igor also sits on the Clinical Policy Steering Group, to bring the latest evidence to bear when policies and guidelines are updated, and the Product Selection Group, to help ensure that procurement decisions are evidence-based.
Tom supports the work of nineteen Workforce Transformation projects within the trust, providing external evidence and examples of good practice elsewhere, so our workforce planning can meet the challenges of the 3Ts project and demographic and social changes.
