Using CAREFUL with teams, departments and small organisations
All of the 28 CAREFUL elements can be use or adapted for use in a single department or a smaller organisation such as a GP surgery or community team.
Here are some initial steps for you to consider if you want to use the CAREFUL approach in a small organisation:
Remember that instead of implementing all 28 elements, you may want to select only a sub-set of these. We have suggested some such solutions (Patient Experience, Staff Experience, Leadership Development, Decision Making, Reputation, and Efficiency), but you can - and should - adapt the programme to your own needs.
Finally, we would suggests you use the Departmental Checklist below, to keep track - in your own mind - of where you are against the CAREFUL ideal. You might also want to use it as a high-level discussion document with your CAREFUL team.
We offer direct coaching and longer-term partnerships to help with the implementation of the CAREFUL programme both with smaller teams and with larger organisations.
