Abstract:

There are over 100,000 vacancies in the NHS, meaning 1 in 12 jobs are unfilled. Half of staff report working unpaid overtime and 1 in 8 left the NHS in 2018. Chronic understaffing and long hours leads to significant stress with 40% of staff reporting suffering from work related stress in the NHS staff survey.

In 2015, NHS Professionals launched a large campaign to move NHS management thinking away from workforce wellbeing as a ‘nice to have’ and towards seeing it as a priority area. In 2020, NHS Employers launched ‘Get on-board with health and wellbeing priorities’, suggesting not much had changed in five years. Unfortunately this new initiative was launched in March and quickly got overshadowed by the COVID-19 crisis.

The pandemic shifted the focus of stress for the NHS workforce but it did not create it. Many were already struggling.

The majority of workforce wellbeing interventions focus on trying to help the staff member cope with stress. Many of these are short term interventions and do nothing to address the wider causes of stress in the first place. Some have even gone so far as to say these interventions are akin to victim blaming, as they suggest it is the worker’s fault they cannot cope with stress, when we should be looking at why they are under stress in the first place.

This webinar will look at some of the research we have done to model the complex relationships between staff retention, job satisfaction and wellbeing and organisational culture and place that in the wider context.

Unlocking real-world data to promote and protect health and prevent ill-health in the Yorkshire and Humber region

Dr Matt Franklin
The Universities of Sheffield, York, and Leeds have joined forces with Local Authorities and Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) from the Sheffield and York areas, and the Yorkshire and Humber Care Record (YHCR) to ‘unlock’ the potential of routinely collected real-world data to promote and protect health and prevent ill-health in local and regional settings.

This article is archived here

here https://doi.org/10.15131/shef.data.14723685.v1

The project’s Principal Investigator (PI), Dr Matthew Franklin (University of Sheffield), sheds some light on why unlocking routine ‘real-world data’ is important, and what needs to be taken into account in order to protect and benefit members of the public - who the data represents. The project ‘Unlocking data to inform public health policy and practice’ is funded by NIHR Public Health Research (PHR) from May 2021 until February 2022 and will bring together a multidisciplinary team of researchers, commissioners, clinical directors, analysts, information governance and legal experts, and members of the public. The project will additionally be provided in kind support by the NIHR Applied Research Collaboration Yorkshire and Humber (ARC-YH).

The research world is abuzz about the potential of ‘real-world data’. Real-world data can take a number of forms; however, we are interested in that data which could inform commissioning processes, particularly by Local Authorities (LAs: e.g. City Councils) and Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs). LAs are responsible for commissioning publicly funded social care and, since 2013, some public health services, while CCGs currently fund the majority of NHS services. The Better Care Fund encourages LAs to work with CCGs by utilising joint working arrangements including integrated commissioning boards and pooled budgets. The currently proposed new Health and Care Bill seeks to embed joint working by making integrated care systems (ICSs) statutory, and both the NHS and LAs will be given a duty to collaborate with each other, which will replace existing collaboration duties. Routinely collected administrative and service activity data is key in supporting LA, CCG, and joint decision-making – this is our real-world data of interest, as this data is used to determine which services will be commissioned or decommissioned, with associated impact on public health within local or regional populations.

Research evidence can support commissioning processes; however, as stated by the Chief Medical Officer,  Professor Chris Whitty:

“research carried out by academics at universities may not address the public health needs of the local authority where the research is being conducted. One of the best ways of tackling this issue is through the co-production of research”.

If local governments are to be engaged as full partners alongside researchers in the generation and use of evidence that informs commissioning decisions, the data and evaluation frameworks they use must be geared towards their local context and commissioning needs. In particular, there is a need to:

1.       Identify the data requirements needed to inform each stage of the commissioning process, within and across sectors dependent on the scope of the commissioning decision and where short and long-term costs and outcomes may fall;

2.       Account for legal and information governance (IG) frameworks for sharing and linking data, and providing access to linked data, alongside broader barriers and facilitators to access and use of data (e.g. staff skill and capacity, data systems) to help inform the commissioning cycle;

3.       Establish evaluation frameworks to enable the data to be used in a transparent and useful way aligned with what is needed to inform each stage of the commissioning cycle.

The aim of our project is to delineate the availability and potential of routinely collected administrative and service activity data to support commissioning decisions within and across sectors including LAs, CCGs, and universities, in order to promote and protect health and prevent ill-health in local and regional settings. We will achieve this aim through four work-packages (WP1-WP4) and by fostering networks and partnership activities between academic research and public health practice:

-          WP1: Mapping review of use and linkage of routine data in local/regional settings for commissioning decisions informed by LAs in England;

-          WP2: Metadata specification and pilot metadata catalogue through stakeholder consultation;

-          WP3: Workshops with stakeholder groups (LAs, CCGs, universities, YHCR) to explore the requirements of routine data to inform commissioning of services specific to falls prevention;

-          WP4: Economic evaluation methods to analyse and present estimates from routine data to inform cross-sector commissioning of services specific to falls prevention.

Building on examples from the identified grey literature (WP1), we will develop a metadata specification and pilot metadata catalogue which could help inform the commissioning process including the legal and IG frameworks for consideration (WP2). The project will then combine qualitative methods to further explore the availability and potential of routinely collected administrative and service activity data to inform commissioning (WP3), with an exploration of what quantitative methods can be used to maximise the use of the data to support commissioning-based decision-making and its value to stakeholders and, subsequently, the public (WP4). Whereas WP1&2 will be a more general assessment of available and potentially available data, WP3&4 will focus on a case study topic area of current cross-sector policy relevance (i.e. services specific to falls prevention) in order to help facilitate and focus discussions, with the generalisability to other commissioning areas being a point of discussion.

The project has a strong emphasis on the involvement of key stakeholders throughout, with members of two LAs, two CCGs, and a patient and public representative involved as co-applicants and embedded in each WP. This work will explore the benefits of unlocking existing and further data collection and flows, including its potential use to inform commissioning and how this connects through to public benefit through better use of economic evaluation evidence in commissioning decisions. It will initiate more evidence-based commissioning decisions through utilisation of such routine data, stimulating joint working across the LA, CCG, and universities, with support from NIHR infrastructure. Overall, achieving our aim will unlock data to promote and protect health and prevent ill-health in the Yorkshire and Humber region with learnings for national change.

About the Author

Dr Matthew Franklin is a Senior Health Economist at the School of Health and Related Research (ScHARR), University of Sheffield. Matt’s interest in real-world data stems from working through the legal, information governance and technical aspects of using such data, originally to better inform trial-based analyses. However, more recently he has begun exploring how to better use real-world data to inform commissioning-based decision making, particularly in local areas which is outside his traditional ‘randomised controlled trial’ setting within non-randomised and ‘natural experiment’ study designs. He is a firm believer in using economic evaluation evidence to inform resource allocation decision making when there is a potential opportunity cost in any decision made.

About the Team and Collaborators

The project represents a collaboration between the Universities of Sheffield, York, and Leeds, Sheffield City and City of York Councils, Sheffield and Vale of York CCGs, and the Yorkshire and Humber Care Record (YHCR). Project co-applicants from the aforementioned include:

University of Sheffield contribute to Royal College of Physicians report - Smoking and health 2021: A coming of age for tobacco control?

Researchers from the School of Health and Related Research (ScHARR) have contributed to a new report ‘Smoking and Health 2021: a coming of age for tobacco control?’ for the Royal College of Physicians.

Almost 60 years after the RCP’s first report on tobacco, Smoking and health, published in 1962, this new report from the RCP’s Tobacco Advisory Group reviews the UK’s progress in reducing smoking prevalence, and sets out comprehensive recommendations for England’s forthcoming National Tobacco Control Plan.

Image:  Royal College of Physicians.

President, Royal College of Physicians Andrew Goddard said: “Too many UK generations have been blighted by addiction to tobacco. To ensure that those born today live their lives tobacco-free, we must take the necessary steps to make smoking obsolete. In a historic time of medicine showing it can solve the health crises that come its way, this is our opportunity to make smoking and tobacco addiction history.”

 

University of Sheffield contributors were Dr Duncan Gillespie, who led the modelling work in section 2.6 which was highlighted in bold in the RCP press release. Dr Luke Wilson and Dr Rob Pryce from ScHARR also contributed to chapter 7 on the economics of tobacco.

 

Smoking and health 2021 says that while the reduction in smoking prevalence by 75% since 1962 has been considered a national success, if the policies advocated by the RCP in 1962 had been adopted and followed through, smoking would have been eradicated from the UK years ago. Instead, modelling of current tobacco control policies shows a failure to achieve a smoking prevalence of <5% until after 2050. 

 

Dr Gillespie said

"The UK government has set the smoke-free target of reaching fewer than 5% smokers in England by 2030, but the model projections done by the University of Sheffield indicate that this will not be achieved and that smoking prevalence among people living in the most deprived socio-economic conditions, particularly for males, is likely to lag far behind. 

 

Dr Gillespie added: “Our forecasts indicate that a sixfold increase in the odds of quitting among males living in the most deprived socio-economic conditions would be needed for smoking prevalence in this population subgroup to reach the 5% target by 2030."

 

" Over the past 5 years the University of Sheffield has developed a wide reaching programme of work that aims to support decision-making on tobacco policy, especially around taxation and treating tobacco addiction which were key themes highlighted by the report. We are looking forward to the next phase of work to support and evaluate the next steps in tobacco policy covering all ten of the priority themes that the report highlights."

About this Event
Measuring and Valuing Health for Children and Adolescents
Tue, 15 June 2021, 13:00 – 14:00 BST

Healthcare treatments and vaccinations can be expensive, but healthcare systems have limited budgets. The allocation of these budgets requires us to measure health and put a value on how good or bad different states of health are. There are accepted methods for measuring and valuing adult health, but this is not the case for children and adolescents. Neither is it the case that methods used for adults can be uncritically applied to younger people. Instead, this talk will explore why it is necessary to think differently when measuring and valuing health for children; what conceptual, methodological, and normative issues the process raises; and what the potential solutions are. This is the subject of ongoing research being conducted in ScHARR and elsewhere globally. Questions for researchers include who should report how a child is feeling? What aspects of child health are important? Who should decide which aspects of child health are most important? What methods should be used to put a value on child and adolescent health? In this talk we will address these questions and more as we review the current state-of-the-art thinking into the measurement and valuation of child health.
