Spread and Sustainability

Spread = The process through which new working methods

developed in one setting are adopted, perhaps with appropriate

modifications, in other organisational contexts.

Sustainability = The process through which new working methods,

performance enhancement, and continuous improvements are

maintained for a period appropriate to a given context.

Things to Think About

Resources: What will you need?

How will you get it?

How much will it cost?

Support: Whose support do you need for the project?

How can you influence them?

Staff: Who else is involved in planning and implementing

the project?

Don't forget the wider team - nurses, pharmacists,

doctors, AHP's etc.

How can you engage them?
