Recognising best practice: badges of recognition for Coventry & Warwickshire NHS Foundation Trust’s (CWPT) children and young people’s mental health services - Rise
Embedding routine outcome monitoring (ROM) into services is a challenging task that stalled for many mental health services during the pandemic.
CORC’s Best Practice Framework is a long-standing tool to help services reflect on and plan their processes for embedding ROM, with the opportunity to become accredited, and ultimately, to improve services for children and young people.
In 2022, we tested out our new way of recognising good practice with Rise, who as a CORC member were introduced to the Best Practice Framework. Rise is a family of NHS-led services providing emotional wellbeing and mental health services for children and young people in Coventry and Warwickshire, whom many of you would have heard speak during the recent CORC Forum.
They were recently awarded CORC Badges of Recognition in two of four themes (of the Best Practice Framework). This recognised their success in embedding ROM through staff development and leadership and management, supported by their CORC Regional Officer, Lee Atkins. They are now in the process of collating evidence for the next two Badges of Recognition in service user involvement and infrastructure and information management.
In this case study you can review their service journey and process towards this.
Embedding ROM successfully into a service requires a big culture change, and Rise achieved this by promoting them in all aspects of the service, from staff training, to supervision, the treatment pathway, creating ‘ROMs Champions’ and using the data in strategic discussion with commissioners.
If this inspires you and you’d be interested in achieving these badges of recognition, please contact your designated Regional Officer. If you're not currently a member and would be interested to find out more, you can find out more here, or just contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
