Title: Leading change, adding value: A framework for nursing, midwifery and care staff
What does this mean for libraries?
There are a number of commitments (page 13) which libraries could hook into and could directly support when delivering services to staff:
Commitment 7 We will lead and drive research to evidence the impact of what we do.
Commitment 8 We will have the right education, training and development to enhance our skills, knowledge and understanding.
Commitment 10 We will champion the use of technology and informatics to improve
practice, address unwarranted variations and enhance outcomes.

Summary of driver:
This framework builds upon Compassion in Practice and outlines how nursing, midwifery and care staff will meet the challenge of delivering the “Triple Aim” of better outcomes, better experiences for people and better use of resources outlined in the Five Year Forward View.
The framework will help to close gaps in health & well-being, care and quality and funding and efficiency. On page 13 of the document, there are 10 aspirational commitments which can be implemented locally at any level.
