This is a crucial role within the Mind & Body programme to manage the 'Pain: Equality of care and support in the community' (PEACS) project that is funded by Impact on Urban Health.
PEACS was established to co-develop and test a bio-psycho-social approach to caring for chronic pain patients in primary care. The project works predominantly with people from Black communities, recognising the historic inequalities in access to care, patient experience and health outcomes experienced by Black people living with chronic pain.
As part of the second year of delivery, PEACS will be rolled out across all 5 GP practices in the Stockwellbeing Primary Care Network - you can find out year 1 of delivery more here: Pain: Equality of care and support in the community (PEACS) Year One Report.
Main duties of the job
The following are key areas of focus:
- To manage all elements of delivery of the PEACS project
- To work with senior clinicians within primary care and secondary care, plus colleagues across the system to build and maintain buy in to the project
- To monitor progress against agreed targets and project milestones as outlined by the commissioner
- To set up, test and measure the impact of improvements and take a proactive approach to learning from mistakes and successes (both individually and collectively)
- To work in collaboration with the Tavistock Institute of Human Relations to continually review and share learning from the project to the wider team and ensure that this is fed into the year 2 proposals and options for sustainability
- To share the learning from the project to partners across London and nationwide through the Mind & Body Improvement Network in order to influence further clinical service transformation for people living with chronic pain and other long term conditions
At King's Health Partners (KHP), the Mind & Body programme works across South East London and beyond to enable joined up and integrated physical and mental healthcare to ultimately reduce the current health inequalities faced by people with physical long term conditions and people with severe mental illness. We know that addressing the mental health needs of those with physical conditions and addressing the physical health needs of those with mental health conditions improves outcomes for service users and patients. Key priorities for the programme are to:
- Establish what good mind and body care looks like;
- Develop a mind and body approach to practice; and
- Support organisations to achieve change and improvement in practice.
The vision of the KHP Mind & Body programme is to embed systematic approaches to mind and body care, research and education within the healthcare system resulting in more effective and more efficient care for patients and service users.
The work will require engaging with a wide range of stakeholders from across our partner organisations and the local health economy, including the voluntary sector to build momentum for the PEACS project. The post holder should have a passion for joining up physical and mental healthcare, and particularly for reducing inequalities within the healthcare system.
