Spotlight on pilot sites: #2 Cornwall Partnership Foundation Trust

How the MHA QI team at Bowman Ward are amplifying patient voice, and improving autism awareness.

Since October 2023, the Bowman Ward team at Cornwall Partnership Foundation Trust have focused on empowering patient voice in all aspects of care and treatment, and providing staff with the skills and confidence to do so.

They've recently piloted a new "My Shared Pathway" document for patients, comprising a raft of "tools for talking" resources and visuals to support conversations about care. They've also established "Green Light Champions" on the ward, to improve autism awareness and training resources. Throughout, the team's been clear that it's all about focusing on what matters most to each individual, and ensuring staff have the capabilities and confidence to understand and meet these diverse needs.
