Facilitators play a key role for successful M&M rounds by organizing and moderating rounds for your clinical group and sharing information post-rounds.
The role of a facilitator is just as important post-rounds. Facilitators help to effect change by sharing bottom-line summaries with the participants at the rounds, your identified Quality Council and with the M&M Working Group.
Sharing issues and recommendations helps the organization to prioritize and action change, a concern identified locally may be echoed across the organization. Every voice counts.
How to Facilitate M&M Rounds
Follow these steps to get started.
Step One: Read the Island Health M&M Overview Guide for detailed instructions on how to facilitate rounds for your clinical group.
Step Two:Schedule an onboarding session to review the overview slides
Complete the Terms of Reference template and find a name for your group.
Step Three: Bring the M&M model to your group for discussion and review of the Overview Slide Deck.
Step Four: Schedule rounds and include inter-professional and multidisciplinary representation.
Step Five: Identify a presenter and provide guidance and support.
Step Six: Host the session, facilitating discussions, setting the tone for a blame-free environment, and fostering psychological safety for participants and the presenter.
Step Seven: Collect bottom-line slides from the presenter and review/edit as necessary based on what was discussed during rounds. Have the original presenter review.
Step Eight: Share the final, de-identified bottom-line summaries with group members, nursing, allied health, and senior management.
Step Nine: Share what you would like to see happen and the final bottom-line summaries directly with your designated Quality Council and with the HAMQC M&M Working Group via the electronic data repository.
Step Ten: Your designated Quality Council and HAMQC Group will acknowledge the receipt of the bottom line slide and recommendations by email within 3 months to share an update. Please provide this feedback to your group at the next rounds.
Repeat Steps Four through Ten. M&M Rounds are required 3 times per year, but frequency will vary by group.
