What is SusQI?
Study the System
Value process mapping overview
This guide will help you to design your own value process map
Examples of value process maps in various clinical settings:
Scanning for Waste
Here you will find a scanning-for-waste resource use table blank for your use. This will help you identify the types of waste which might be occurring in your department or system.
Recognising Resource Use
Here you will find a recognising resource use table blank for your use. This will help you identify waste hotspots that could be the target for your improvement idea
Scanning for Social Impact
Here you will find a scanning for social impacts table blank for your use. This will help you to identify the negative and positive social impacts on different groups of your current system and your proposed intervention idea.
Scanning for Social Determinants
Here you will find a scanning for social determinants table blank for your use. This will help you identify the socially-determined roots causes for a problem, that might enable you to target interventions to prevent these problems occurring.
Driver Diagram template
This diver diagram is blank for your use and can be filled in to help you think about potential change ideas in your setting
Examples of Driver Diagrams in various clinical settings:
Measure the Impact
Environmental outcomes: carbon footprinting for healthcare
This document will show you how to work out a carbon footprint of a service, system or pathway using updated greenhouse gas emission factors
Measuring environmental impacts
This table will help you to organise how you measure the environmental impacts of your system and improvement idea
Note: The Scanning for Social Impacts table from the Study the System section above can be used after designing or implementing your intervention. This will help you to understand if you have have had an overall increase or decrease in negative social impacts and for which group.
