The Sustainability Model is a tool to diagnose, to predict how the implementation of the improvement project has the greatest chance of success.
One of the main reasons why it is difficult to integrate quality improvement into an organization is that many of the changes that have been implemented are insufficiently guaranteed. The literature shows that organizational changes did not succeed in 70% of cases (Daft and Noe, 2000. Beer and Nohria, 2001).
To increase the sustainability of improvements considerably for patients and care institutions (cure and care), the NHS Sustainability Model and Manual has been developed. Teams involved in improvement initiatives within their own organizational unit or organization can use this.
The Sustainability Manual provides practical advice on how to increase the chance of success for your improvement initiative and make it a lasting success.
