Organisational Change Through Action Learning
Incorporation of drug management skills into the clinical practice staff (see Appendix 2, for checklist of drug management clinical learning outcomes).
Key areas of development:
Key issues to consider regarding drug management
What is the core business of staff within their various roles? Where does drug use come into those roles? What are the role boundaries of workers in their dealings with drug use issues? Are there agreed role boundaries within this organisation and between this organisation and drug specialist agencies?
Do staff have adequate knowledge and skills to carry out their role in regard to drug management? Are clear competencies outlined as they relate to specific roles (eg. different for clinical staff, counter staff, supervisory staff, etc.)? Can staff demonstrate and explain their use of drug management theoretical models and frameworks, which underpin their clinical practice?
Is there a climate of active learning, which encourages developing and trying new skills, using a growth model of reflective practice? Are learning resources accessible? Is there active peer and line management supervision, which rewards the development of new knowledge, skills and practices? Are their clear policies and procedures, which outline the management of drug use within the organisation?
