THE QI JOURNEY
FOR THE PURPOSE OF THIS PROJECT WE HAVE DIVIDED THE CARE PATHWAY INTO TWO WORKSTREAMS.
Neck of Femur Fracture Driver Diagram
A driver diagram - also referred to as an action effect diagram was created by the team as part of the the initial planning, it is a visial representation of the teams theory of change and describes their understanding of how the system and the pathway work towards the overall aim.
The Diagram sets out what changes will likely cause the desired effects and contribute to the overall aim and defines the specific changes or interventions that will lead to the desired outcomes which are the key drivers.
The Driver Diagram will serve as a tool - it will be updated regularly by the team to refine the theories of improvement and defining which aspects of the system should be measured and monitored. Our next stage is to see if the changes/interventions are effective, and if the underlying causal theories are correct.
