As one of the first Boards involved in the DfM leadership programme this builds on that foundation of leadership in action.

Evidence Base for Practice
Rights, Relationships and Recovery- Action 1 commits to all Mental Health Nurses having values based training. The refreshed action plan takes this a step further by stating that mental health nurses should ensure engagement with the 10 Essential Shared Capabilities Learning Materials and continue to develop practice in a way that reflects the capabilities, evidencing this in their personal development plans.
NHS Ayrshire and Arran has made their 2 day training available to all staff working within mental health services.

10 Essential Shared Capabilities training material as published by NES – relate to Action 1 in RRR.


Quality assurance/impact of practice
Evaluation forms were collected at the end of the day by the Associate Nurse Director. In relation to the 10 ESC training the comments were overwhelmingly positive. In relation to the input by the trainers the feedback was also overwhelmingly positive.

The NHS Board are the strategic leaders within NHS Ayrshire and Arran, demonstrating their commitment and signing up to values based services will impact on the total population within the area. There will also be a positive affirmation of the development and training surrounding the 10 ESCs which will support the ongoing roll out across MHS.

the project / initiative relates to the vision of the National Nursing Review Report: Rights, Relationships and Recovery and/or Delivering for Mental Health:

This directly relates to Action 1 (RRR) in relation to rolling out values based practice. Additionally action 21 and 23 talk about leadership and ongoing development – this development day underlines our Board’s commitment to these as values and beliefs of the organisation by role modelling behaviours. The discussions on the day helped Board members to reaffirm their commitment to equality and diversity as well as increasing their knowledge of mental health. As one of the first Boards involved in the DfM leadership programme this builds on that foundation of leadership in action.



Practice Summary
Rights, Relationships and Recovery- Action 1 commits to all Mental Health Nurses having values based training.
As a way of demonstrating the importance of this within our Board area, NHS Ayrshire and Arran's Chief Executive and Chariman were asked if the Board would undertake the 10 Essential Shared Capabilities training as part of their development sessions.
They agreed and one day training was delivered in September 2009.
Practice Detail
The 10 Essential Shared Capabilities training materials and our existing 2 day programme required to be adapted to enable us to deliver a one day development session primarily aimed at non-clinical staff

We required to tailor the 10 Essential Shared Capabilities training material to a one day development session primarily aimed at non clinical staff, emphasising that the values running through the programme are equally of importance when interacting with each other as colleagues.There were three underlying principles to running this programme-
Sending a message of leadership throughout the Board area by demonstrating involvement
Sharing the message of values based practice with the Board for their own development·
Demonstrating to the Board the training we are undertaking with our staff across the whole of mental health services

The Board were taken through the training pack in brief (although they had all been given the pack ahead of the event), visiting each of the capabilities. Several interactive group work sessions were incorporated into the day as well as ‘whole’ Board discussion sessions. The whole group were asked to discuss individual feedback from smaller groups that had worked on specific allocated questions.The days training event stayed true to the original training programme although some elements/scenarios could not be carried out due to the time restrictions.The last half hour of the day was conducted by the Director of O&HRD and consisted of the Board revising their beliefs and values on the back of the day’s discussions – these are published belief and values which underpin our mission statement.

The Board committed to revising their own ‘values’ statements – this was done at the end of the day. The revised statements have been redrafted by the Director of O&HRD and sent to Board members for comment before these can be relaunched publicly.
Challenges
There was no direct service user involvement in the delivery of the training; although a service user (one of our local trainers) was invited to participate due to work commitments that was not possible. There has been service user involvement in the specific training programmes run within A&A, including the design of our delivery following on from the Train the Trainers programme.
Additional Comments
It is unprecedented for nurses (not only mental health service nurse) to have the opportunity to lead training for the NHS Board, far less on a values based approach to care. For MHS nurses to run a whole days programme for the Board, to hold their attention and to receive such positive affirmation of the training demonstrates exceptional qualities of those involved.

The involvement of the NHS Board in this training is an exemplar across NHS Scotland – it demonstrates a commitment to the values of equality, diversity and underlines our belief in recovery. It demonstrates a leadership modelling approach which recognises mental health and mental health services nurses as valued within our organisation. It also underlines the organisations commitment to users of our services through sharing of values which are expected to run through the organisation.
