About this toolkit
This toolkit was developed to help healthcare systems implement the PRSB Wound Care Standard. The standard sets out the information needed for effective assessment, management, maintenance, and prevention of chronic wounds.
The Wound Care Standard will enable consistent information sharing and recording between wound care professionals and people, supporting better health outcomes and more efficient care.
Who is the toolkit for?
Health and care professionals
Project and programme managers
Information and data quality champions
The toolkit is divided into sections that address each stage of the change management process needed to adopt standards.
It is intended to help all professionals, whatever their role in digital transformation. However, depending on your role in the change management process you may find certain sections more relevant to your needs.
It is vital to remember that successful change programmes often require several iterations of the sections in this toolkit. These stages are the lifecycle of a standard adoption programme from the first iteration through to completion and can be repeated at any point in your implementation programme.
The sections in the toolkit are:
Describes the standard, how and when to use it . This section is useful for health and care professionals, commissioners, transformation managers and leaders, technical staff and IT leads as well as system suppliers.
Sets out how to create a vision, enlist leaders and build a team to deliver change and its benefits. Transformation managers, project managers, digital leaders and champions may find this section particularly useful.
Will feature case studies, lessons learned, resources, links and details of how to join communities of interest. Users could include anyone involved in the change management project.
Before you start
Before you get started you may want to read our webpages, which explain the content and purpose of our standards.
- Standards explained
The Standards explainer describes what information record standards are, why they are needed, and how they support better care.
Successful transformational change
To succeed transformation, programmes need to be built on strong foundations with clear goals in mind, the right leadership and an engaged coalition of staff and stakeholders. Done well, they result in new, more efficient and effective ways of working that deliver better services and care. As such they require planning, committed leaders and project management.
If you’re adopting this standard it may be useful to think of doing so in terms of a change management approach. This toolkit presumes that your organisation and partners in the local health and care economy will have processes and people in place who can support the change management programme.
