SEAchange: Guide to a pragmatic evidence-based approach to Sustainable, Effective and Appropriate change in health services
A formal account of an observation, investigation, finding, activity or any other type of information.
There are many reasons why these small projects often do not meet their objectives, or meet them temporarily only to fail once the project supports are removed. Lack of a systematic approach to development, implementation and evaluation is one of them.
The SEAchange model is based on a few simple rules that anyone can apply. It is an evidence-based approach that can be used by health service staff who have no training in health service improvement methods; those starting out who want to take an evidence-based approach from the beginning; those who have been involved in projects that have been unsuccessful and want to try a new approach; and those who are experienced at managing change successfully but are interested in a different viewpoint.
