We understand that a lot of improvement work starts and finishes without people really knowing what goes on but endsÂ with a list of recommendations and changes. Its likely people make the same mistakes on their journey or have the same challenges so we wantÂ to share our learning and progress with you.
Purpose of the website
Through the blogÂ we hopeÂ to improveÂ understanding of how nutrition can impact on cancer and the journeyÂ patient’s experience;
- Challenge how organisations & treatmentÂ are structuredÂ to supportÂ betterÂ inclusion ofÂ nutritional care.
- Promote the involvement of patients, carers, public and staff in change andÂ processes and how we can learn from each other while building solutions together.
First lesson – setting up a website on your own with no knowledge is hard!!! Try and account for this in your project budget or get someoneÂ you knowÂ to help.
Science is a continuousÂ process that developsÂ knowledge; nothing stays the same and systems always change. Staffing, capacity and financial pressures oftenÂ affect theÂ potential for innovation.
Through theÂ investmentÂ from Macmillan inÂ this project weÂ have the opportunityÂ toÂ step out of our normal clinical roles and look at things differently withÂ the help of staff and service users, asking what are we doing now? AndÂ whatÂ can we do better?
The posts and resources posted on this website are a professional commentary based on theÂ experiences of this project only, so other experiencesÂ may differ depending on services or areas they work in.
