Cedar's Value in Health (ViH) work

PROVISION

A qualitative study using focus groups to explore patient views on the visualisation of patient-level patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs) in three exemplar clinical areas

PROMs following cataract surgery

Multiple analysis projects aimed to explore changes in PROMs responses after a cataract procedure using data collected on the National Platform.

Shared Decision-Making in Lymphoedema

The purpose of this project is to deliver a shared decision-making Train-the-Trainer course to members of Lymphoedema Wales. At the end of this pilot, the Train-the-Trainer course will enable rollout of shared decision making to all Lymphoedema Services in Wales using the developed decision aids to support.

PROMs Advice and Licencing

The Cedar team are responsible for supporting clinical teams in identifying appropriate PROMs tools for use across Wales, and can also support local teams in providing feedback and advice on PROM selection.

Spinal Surgery Patient-Reported Outcome Analysis

Working alongside clinicians and Heath Board information teams, the aim of this project is to identify any differences in PROMs score as a result of different kinds of different patient spinal surgery pathways (Lumbar, Cervical, Intradural, Tumour, Trauma, Infection).

Welsh Translation and Validation of PROMs

As part of our Welsh language provision, the Welsh Value in Health Centre provide all nationally adopted PROMs in Welsh as well as English. As few PROMs tools are available in Welsh, Cedar are responsible for negotiating their translation with the licence holder.

Testing of the National PROMs Platform's Scoring Algorithms

Cedar carry out testing of summary scores of PROMs questionnaires derived from algorithms for use in the Welsh Clinical Portal and stored in the Data Warehouse

User Acceptance Testing of the National PROMs Platform's e-forms

Alongside the WVIHC’s Implementation Team, Cedar performs user acceptance testing on all e-forms included on NHS Wales’ National PROMs Platform developed by Digital Health and Care Wales.

Cardiff South West Cluster Evaluation Support

Cardiff South West cluster comprises of 10 GP practices which cares for 60,000 people in areas of high deprivation. Support is offered to people with complex needs linking them to care in their local community. Cedar is supporting the evaluation of this project by gathering qualitative data, interviewing staff and patients. As well as providing evidence of improvements in patient care, this is also providing feedback on further potential improvements, and learning points.
