Top Tips - Royal Cornwall Hospitals NHS Trust: Effectively implementing IPC guidelines

Engage clinicians Not only doctors but all nurses, healthcare assistants, and therapists.  Use posters on ward to remind staff when setting up service.

Train staff Ensure all staff trained using the STARS (Stroke Training and Awareness Resources) VTE module.

Spread good news When audit shows good performance let staff know, we use ward newsletter.

Educate patients and carers Use an information leaflet – we incorporate this into our generic stroke info pack which all ward patients are given.
