Psychological Therapies HEAT Target Workshop

Friday 2nd September, Iris Murdoch Centre, StirlingUniversity

‘Understanding theRole of Data in Relation toWaiting Times for Psychological Therapies'

This workshop is focused on supporting NHS Boards to develop effective data capture systems to enable measurement and delivery of the new Psychological Therapies HEAT target.

By the end of the workshop delegates will:

  • Understand how the work to develop effective data capture systems fits into the wider work to deliver the Psychological Therapies HEAT target;
  • Understand the current definition of the Psychological Therapies HEAT target, what definitional issues are still outstanding and what is in place to address these;
  • Explore the interface between the Psychological Therapies, CAMHS and Substance Misuse waiting times and discuss how nationally we can manage the overlaps;
  • Understand what data needs to be captured locally to measure waiting times from referral to treatment with a psychological therapy and to support the work to redesign services to enable quicker access;
  • Considered what the local challenges/barriers might be to collecting this data and exchanged ideas on how to address them;
  • Have had the opportunity to work with colleagues from their NHS Board to review current delivery plans in light of the information shared at this workshop

Workshop 1 - Applying National Waiting Times Guidance to Psychological Therapies

By the end of the workshop delegates will:

  • Understand what data needs to be captured locally to measure ‘adjusted’ waiting times from referral to treatment with a psychological therapy
  • Have clarity around when the waiting time clock will start for a range of scenarios
  • Be able to apply guidance in relation to medical and social unavailability to clinical scenarios
  • Make recommendations for areas of practice for which guidance has still to be developed

Workshop 2 – Using Data to Drive Improvement in Access Times

By the end of the workshop delegates will:

  • Have identified the key issues/problems locally that may impact on actual delivery of this target
  • Considered different ways in which data can help you to better understand these problems and help to generate potential solutions.

Workshop 3 – Implementing Data Standards into Electronic Systems

By the end of the workshop delegates will:

  • Understand the key lessons learnt from the generic 18 weeks implementation around implementing data standards into electronic systems.
  • Have identified the main issues faced in capturing the relevant information for the psychological therapies HEAT target in electronic systems and discussed potential solutions with representatives from other Boards who use a similar system.
  • Have had the opportunity to make recommendations for any additional support nationally that would help you to overcome issues locally.
