Use SPC charts to monitor length of stay

2010 September 27

At the Taunton conference last week a few people asked for more information about SPC charts. SPC charts are excellent for illustrating process changes (such as the introduction of an enhanced recovery pathway) as well as for the ongoing monitoring of a pathway.

Click here to visit the NHS Institute for Innovation and Improvement website where you can get an excel model to make your own SPC chart as well as a tutorial on how to analyse SPC charts.

    Dear Supratik,
    Thanks for your question – I would suggest contacting Mr Nigel Acheson, he is the National Advisor and Gynaecology Clinical Lead for the DoH Enhanced Recovery Partnership Programme, and is a Consultant at the Royal Devon and Exeter NHS Foundation Trust.
    Best wishes,

    Has anyone got any information about any trust who has implemented an ER pathway in GYNAECOLOGICAL ONCOLOGY and is collecting data on this prospectively?
