Identify service improvement opportunities within Acute Therapies

Data collection for the 2017 Acute Therapies benchmarking project is now open

The Acute Therapies project covers four AHP disciplines: Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy, Speech & Language Therapy, and Dietetics.

The project compares benchmarks on service models, access, activity, finance, workforce, quality and outcomes. Good practice is identified in the project and members are encouraged to share good practice throughout the project.

The projects outputs will include an interactive toolkit consolidating all the metrics collected, a high level national report outlining key messages and findings, a bespoke report for participants and free attendance at our Acute Therapies event on 11th October 2017.

The timescales for this project are as follows:

  • Project opens for data collection – 15th May 2017
  • Project closes for data collection – 21st July 2017
  • Data validation – August and September 2017
  • First draft comparisons and analysis toolkit – September 2017
  • Acute Therapies Benchmarking Conference (London) – 11th October 2017
  • Final reports – December 2017

Project registration and data collection can be accessed through the members' area.
