Quality strategy, brilliant basics and research evidence

Research provides the evidence on which quality services can be developed. For this reason the research team try to link Multiprofessional research to the CMFT quality agenda wherever possible.

The Team also work with researchers and their managers to help match individual research priorities with departmental clinical priorities and agendas. The aims of the quality campaign are to deliver the best patient experience and to improve staff working experience.

Brilliant Basics captures a number of initiatives launched under the Quality Campaign to measure the quality of care from a patient’s perspective. Each month quarter sees a different focus from the Brilliant Basics Team, involving talks, e-Shots and the distribution of the latest research evidence. CMFT researchers have contributed to Brilliant Basics, illustrating how Nursing, Midwifery and AHP research in Manchester contributes directly to the provision of evidence-based services at CMFT.
