Flow Coaching Academy (FCA)
The aim of the Flow Coaching Academy is to learn how to apply team coaching skills and improvement science at care pathway level in order to improve patient flow through a healthcare system.
Pathways are defined at the condition level reflecting how patients actually experience care. Patients are central to flow improvement and pathways are actively encouraged to develop ways in which the patient voice can be represented and ultimately where care can be co-produced. The programme is funded by the Health Foundation and builds on learning from two previous Health Foundation funded programmes, Flow Cost Quality and the Sheffield Microsystem Coaching Academy.
- Cohort 1 took place in Sheffield October 2015 to September 2016.
- Cohort 2 is running in Sheffield January to December 2017 and in Bath February to December 2017.
- Cohort 3 will start in Sheffield in February 2018, and in additional locations later on in 2018.
